  In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play at Silver Spring Stage

In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play

Silver Spring Stage
10145 Colesville Road Silver Spring

Silver Spring Stage entices audiences with Sarah Ruhl's Tony Award nominated comedy of marriage, intimacy, and electricity. Set in the 1880's, a proper scientist has innocently invented a new vibrator device for treating “hysteria” in women. His young wife wonders what is happening in the next room after a new patient arrives, which prompts the couple to examine the nature of their own marriage, and what it truly means to love someone.

"...What thing can put a man to death and bring him back to life again? Why the cure for women's hysteria, naturally, or better known as electricity. Thank you, Mr. Edison, for the focal point of Sarah Ruhl's play with two titles, In The Next Room or The Vibrator Play. While electricity does run as a strong alternating and direct current throughout the script, there are so many more deeply layered, multi-faceted components of this play that make it an exquisite exploration of human relationships. In The Next Room or The Vibrator Play is currently electrifying Silver Spring Stage under the direction of Jen Katz and has a raw, pulsating heartbeat of curiosity and intrigue as well as passion and love coursing through it from start to finish."
