About In the Next Room or the Vibrator Play:

In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play is a comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity.

Set in the 1880s at the dawn of the age of electricity and based on the bizarre historical fact that doctors used vibrators to treat 'hysterical' women (and some men), the play centers on a doctor and his wife and how his new therapy affects their entire household.

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. When a new "hysterical" patient and her husband bring a wet nurse and their own complicated relationship into the doctor's home, Dr. and Mrs. Givings must examine the nature of their own marriage, and what it truly means to love someone.

Winner! 2010 Will Glickman Award for Best New Play to Premiere in the Bay Area!

Sarah Ruhl is the 2003 recipient of the Whiting Award for Drama

"Insightful, fresh and funny, the play is as rich in thought as it is in feeling...one of the most gifted and adventurous American playwrights to emerge in recent years...In the Next Room is a true novelty: a sex comedy designed not for sniggering teenage boys or grown men who wish they were still sniggering teenage boys, but for adults with open hearts and minds." 

- The New York Times

 

"A play that's smart, delicate and very, very funny!" - New York Post
