In the Next Room or the vibrator play

by Sarah Ruhl

Dramat Spring Mainstage

Sarah Ruhl's landmark *In the Next Room or the vibrator play*, a 2010 Tony nominee and Finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, is a hilarious and elegant exploration of how an electrical device, now an ubiquitous adult toy but once the most cutting edge of medical instruments, inspires a revolution of intimacy within a prim Victorian home. Join us as we explore the relationship between Dr. Givings, a progressive New England doctor who practices an electrical therapy for female hysteria, and his eavesdropping wife Catherine, who’s in search of an electricity all her own. Add a grief-stricken wet nurse, an anxious new patient, and a flamboyant artist to the mix, and this newfound vocabulary of desire is primed to explode.
