|2:00 pm||Theatre Production: "In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play)" by Sarah Ruhl Kimmel Theatre|
Written by Sarah Ruhl and directed by Saffron Henke. The show runs Feb. 17, 18 and 24, 25 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 26 at 2 p.m. in Kimmel Theatre. For tickets contact the Box Office at 895-4293. A 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony nominee for Best Play, Sarah Ruhl's provocative and sometimes tender comedy is set in the 1880s -- a time when doctors believed that "hysterical" women (and men) could be treated with vibrators, and electricity was a brand new technology. The play finds a Victorian-era doctor in New York championing the effects of this new electronic device, while in the adjoining room, the doctor's wife is yearning for a different kind of intimacy. IN THE NEXT ROOM or THE VIBRATOR PLAY is a sex comedy with a head on its shoulders and a heart on its sleeve.
