‘In the Next Room’ June 20-21
“In the Next Room” or the “vibrator play” is a comedy about marriage, intimacy, electricity, and the alternating currents of desire. Nominated for the 2010 Tony Award for Best Play and selected as a Finalist for the 2010 Pulitzer Prize, “In the Next Room” will be directed by Tom Burns.
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.
