About this show

Ruhl's Tony-nominated play is an exploration of love, longing and science in a time of invention and discovery. In a 19th century home, a doctor's new treatment for "hysteria" is capturing everyone's attention, including that of his wife. As she overhears his patients' sessions in the next room, they awaken feelings of her own--but can Mrs. Givings break through the wall between minds and hearts, husbands and wives? This thought-provoking, funny and touching play about marriage and intimacy is sure to be the buzz of the city!
