In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play)
PRESENTED BY: American Theatre Company
Set in the 1880s, this 2009 play by Sarah Ruhl is a provocative, funny, touching and entertaining story. Dr. Givings (Israel Lister) is obsessed with the marvels of technology, namely vibrators, and what they can do for his patients. His wife, Catherine (Meghan Hurley), is only a bystander in her husband's world, listening at the door from the next room as he treats his patients. Dr. Givings is not sure exactly how the vibrators help the people he treats, but they do keep coming back! The only person who is not helped by the doctor is his own wife, who longs to connect with him and their new baby.
