In The Next Room
or The Vibrator Play
By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Abigail Lis-Perlis
Assistant Director Shannon Knapp
At the dawn of the age of electricity a doctor introduces a treatment for "hysteria." In The Next Room chronicles the first use of the vibrator as a clinical device for bringing women to orgasm. This provocative and moving comedy forces us to confront the realities of marriage, love and the nature of intimacy.
