In the Next Room

(or the Vibrator play)

written by Sarah Ruhl

Set at the dawn of the age of electricity and based on the bizarre hypothesis that Victorian doctors used vibrators to treat 'hysterical' women (and some men), this play centres around a doctor, his wife, the patients, and their households through an exploration of this new invention that has the potential to change everything.
