Yes. That kind of vibrator. Nominated for a Tony Award and a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, 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. A tender and elegant new comedy lit by unexpected sparks from the approaching era of electricity, equality, science and sexuality.
“Breathtakingly inventive...has the potential to be a modern masterpiece.”
