NUTS Presents 'In the Next Room or the Vibrator Play', by Sarah Ruhl

1 Oct 2014 to 4 Oct 2014

It is the late 19th Century in New York. Interest in the newly invented electric light bulb is growing amongst the educated upper-classes. Meanwhile, a pioneer in medical innovations, Dr Givings, has been working on his own electrical device. He aims to treat women suffering from hysteria, but when one of his patients emerges from an appointment glowing and eager to return, all involved stand to realize far more than the wonders of electricity.

In her exploration of female sexuality at the dawn of the electrical age, Sarah Ruhl has managed, with humour and finesse, to articulate what was until the late 19th century shrouded in mystery: the female orgasm. Nominated for both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, In the Next Room or the Vibrator Play is Ruhl's most popular comedy to date.

Featuring CAT Award winner Oliver Baudert (Best Featured Actor in a Play – A Month of Sundays, 2013) and CAT Award Winner Molly Jones (Best Featured Actress in a Play – Female of the Species, 2013), as well as Evie Hall, Lauren Klein, Dean Batten, Nikita Waldron and Dylan Van Den Berg (CAT Award Nominee – Best Featured Actor in a Play – Female of the Species, 2013), 'In the Next Room or the Vibrator Play' is the fourth instalment of NUTS’ Season of female playwrights, and is set to challenge and delight audiences during its short season at the Courtyard Studio.
