Description

Featuring onstage orgasms and clinical applications of electric vibrators, Sarah Ruhl's In the Next Room, or, the Vibrator Play opens Pear Theatre's next season. Directed by Caroline Clark, this fascinating and often funny play examines a slice of American history in which physicians treated various female (and male) ailments by use of an electric vibrator; in a world where women's concerns are regularly dismissed or misdiagnosed by men, as well as by the women themselves, because their society has not given them the words or concepts to articulate their various griefs and grievances. Nominated for a Tony Award for Best Play, and a finalist for a Pulitzer Prize, In the Next Room was called "a fascinating, funny and evocative play ... (an) enticing blend of irreverent humor and skewed realism" by the San Francisco Chronicle.
