In the Next Room, or the vibrator play

Lisa Gaye Dixon, director
By Sarah Ruhl

In the waning years of the 19th century, the age of electricity enlivens the possibilities for human satisfaction. A path-breaking physician treats the “hysteric” needs of his female patients while overlooking domestic discontent in his own home. Illinois Theatre examines love and marriage, artistic inspiration, and burgeoning female sexuality. Viewed through a blushing comic lens of sexual awakening and desire, audiences will surely find moments of identification, sympathy, and laugh-out-loud acknowledgment.

This performance contains adult language, adult content, nudity, and is intended for mature audiences only.

There will be a post-performance Talkback on Thursday, November 2.
