Scenes from SpeakEasy Stage Company's production of Sarah Ruhl's 'In The Next Room (or, The Vibrator Play)'. Directed by Scott Edmiston. Through October 16.
"This laugh-out-loud, provocative and touching play is a comedy about marriage, intimacy and electricity. 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."
