In the Next Room or the vibrator play: Sexual Sparks Fly in Wild Comedy

Sarah Ruhl's provocative and touching comedy of sex, class, race and female frustration unfolds in the late 1800s, when electricity was still new and doctors believed that nervous or opinionated women suffered from "hysteria." The cure for this unfortunate ailment? You guessed it: a brilliant invention called the vibrator. In the Next Room centers on a doctor and his wife who have jealousy and communication issues. When the doctor's wife hears strange sounds emanating from the treatment room and sees patients glowing with a special something on their way out, she's determined to investigate. Ranging from tender to farcical, this clever play ponders marriage and intimacy, and how electricity came along to give both a revitalizing spark. In the Next Room was a 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony nominee for Best Play.
