In the Next Room
(or The Vibrator Play)

By Sarah Ruhl

Climax, paroxysm, excitement, gratification, orgasm; also known as female hysteria. 

In the waning years of the 19th century, a ground-breaking physician treats the “hysteric” needs of his female patients while overlooking domestic discontentment of his bored, and lonely wife. An examination of female sexuality and autonomy, this historically accurate comedy navigates love and marriage, and the remarkable origins of electrifying medical treatments for women.

A show that will make you laugh as much as you blush, this Pulitzer-nominated play explores sexual awakening and desire, while confronting questions of female sexuality and emancipation.
