In the Next Room (or the vibrator play)

April 18 - 27th, 2014

In a seemingly perfect, well-to-do Victorian home, proper gentleman and scientist Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary new device for treating “hysteria” in women, and occasionally men: the vibrator. Adjacent to the doctor’s laboratory, his young and energetic wife tries to tend to their newborn daughter—and wonders exactly what is going on in the next room. As interest surges for the treatment, Dr. and Mrs. Givings must examine the nature of their own marriage and what it truly means to love someone.
