In the Next Room or the vibrator play

May 15-June 1, 2013 (preview May 14)

By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Bronwyn Steinberg

Imagine a time when electricity was a novelty and female "hysteria" was considered a treatable problem. Now imagine what happens when they both come together…

Sarah Ruhl's Tony and Pulitzer Prize-nominated comedy is set in a genteel, Victorian-era spa town where Dr. Givings specializes in treating hysteria with a mysterious, electrically powered device, but is blind to the state of his own unfulfilling and sterile marriage. As patients arrive for their electrically powered, secret treatment, his wife Catherine becomes curious… and jealous. What is going on in the next room?

Ruhl's play is at once a deftly comic skewering of societal repressions and a lyrical exploration of love. It has been staged across North America and Europe and has been translated into Spanish, Hebrew and German.

Featuring Rideau Award nominated actors Michelle LeBlanc and Sarah Finn.

"In the Next Room or the vibrator play" is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
