"In the Next Room or the vibrator play," by Sarah Ruhl, opens tomorrow (Friday, June 22) and runs through July 15 at Performance Network Theatre, directed by Suzi Regan and featuring John Seibert, Leslie Hull, Aphrodite Nikolovski and Hazen Cuyler. See below for photos from the show!
Upon the dawn of electricity, the aptly named Dr. Givings invests in a buzzworthy new instrument used to treat female patients' Hysteria. As the number of blushing patients swells, the good doctor's curious wife breaks into his office to try the device for herself, unleashing an entirely new type of energy deep within.
This stimulating comedy, which pulses with love, desire, and laughs, was a 2010 Tony nominee for Best Play. Starring John Seibert, Aphrodite Nikolovski, Milica Govich, Rusty Mewha, Carollette Phillips, Leslie Hull, and Hazen Cuyler.
