IN THE NEXT ROOM (The Vibrator Play)

Website Theater Company of Lafayette

THE STORY:  (from concordtheatricals.com)

In the Next Room or The Vibrator Play is a comedy set in the 1880s 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.

In a seemingly perfect, affluent Victorian-age home, proper gentleman and scientist Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary new device for treating “hysteria” in women (and occasionally men): the vibrator. Adjacent to the doctor’s laboratory, his young and energetic wife tries to tend to their newborn daughter and wonders exactly what is going on in the next room. When a new “hysterical” patient and her husband bring a wet nurse and their own complicated relationship into the doctor’s home, Dr. and Mrs. Givings must examine the nature of their own marriage, and what it truly means to love someone.
