Theatre Production
“In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play” by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Christian Boy
8 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 12-Saturday, Feb. 16
2 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 17
Frances Frazier Comstock Theatre
A comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity. Set at the dawn of the age of electricity and based on the bizarre historical fact that doctors used vibrators to treat ‘hysterical’ women (and some men), the play centers on a doctor and his wife and how his new therapy affects their entire household. Dr. and Mrs. Givings must examine the nature of their own marriage, and what it truly means to love someone.  The play is a sensitive exploration of the physical and emotional repression suffered by the women of the era, which has yet to disappear entirely.
