About this show

In a well-to-do Victorian home, a doctor innocently invents a new machine to treat female "hysteria." While his young and lively wife tends to their newborn baby, she begins to wonder what her husband is up to in the next room. As she tries to uncover what all the buzz is about, the doctor's new invention sends a shock wave through the lives of his patients and to his surprise, his own marriage. Nominated for three Tony Awards, In the Next Room or The Vibrator Play, written by Sarah Ruhl, is a poignant and provocative comedy that explores the nature of love, intimacy, and electricity.
