"In The Next Room (or The Vibrator Play)" - By Sarah Ruhl - Directed by Shonni Holmes.
In the 19th century, doctors began treating women for “hysteria” by bringing them to orgasm using a device we now know as a vibrator. "In the Next Room" is a fictional take on historical events about one such doctor who provides women this service when brought in by their husbands. The doctor doesn’t realize he is guilty of the same faults as other husbands, until his sexually frustrated wife, after conversations with a wet nurse, convinces him to try to something new. Contains mature themes.
