In the Next RoomReturn

Playwright Sarah Ruhl Producer Pear Theatre  [Website] Description This insightful and provocative play, directed by Caroline Clark, examines a slice of history when physicians treated various female (and male) ailments by the use of an electric vibrator, applied to private parts in a treatment room. It's a fascinating and often funny glimpse into a patriarchal society, in which women are not given the words or concepts to articulate their needs. The New Yorker called Ruhl's play “her best to date.” Running Time 2:30 Performers April Culver   [Catherine Givings]
