Sarah Ruhl's IN THE NEXT ROOM (or the Vibrator Play)
IN THE NEXT ROOM (or the Vibrator Play) is a provocative, funny, touching and marvelously entertaining story about a young doctor and his wife. Set in the late 19th century but with a very contemporary feel, this gem of a play (Tony Award nominee for Best Play in 2010) is both funny and touching. Dr. Givings is obsessed with the marvels of technology and what they can do for his patients. His wife, Catherine, is only a bystander in her husband's world - listening at the door from the next room as he treats his female patients. Dr. Givings is not sure exactly how the vibrators help the women he treats for "hysteria" - but they do keep coming back. The only woman whose problem is not helped by the doctor is his own wife who longs to connect with him - but not electrically.
