WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Sarah Ruhl brings her Tony-nominated Broadway hit In the Next Room or the Vibrator Play home to Chicago. In the twilight of the Victorian age, a buzzworthy new medical device is developed to calm women with "hysteria." In fact, it has quite a stimulating effect when used in the home offices of Dr. Givings, that most modern of men. As he pioneers an intimate new therapy, his young wife becomes determined to investigate the experiments that have patient after patient leaving the procedure room with the rosy glow of pleasure. Ruhl's stylish comedy pulses and hums along as it dispels old-fashioned notions of female sexuality, intimacy and marriage at the dawn of the age of electricity.
