Wombat Theatre Co. presents: In the Next Room, or The Vibrator Play

May 12, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - May 15, 2016 @ 3:00 pm

Synopsis: Wombat Theatre Company is proud to present Sarah Ruhl’s tender, funny, and provocative play: In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play. Victorian civilization is rocked to its tightly-corseted core when a new treatment is invented for hysteria in women (and occasionally men): the vibrator. As electricity begins to invade private homes, it shines a light on a society that believes a woman doesn’t have a sex drive and that she is defined by her ability to be a mother. But a doctor obsessed with his new invention and his curious wife struggling to care for their newborn are about to discover the modern age. Based on historical fact, nominated for the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, this comedy brilliantly weaves issues of sexuality, gender, class, race, marriage, and motherhood in one surprisingly poetic and poignant play.

Warning: This play contains strong sexual content and some nudity.
