A 2010 Tony Award nominee for Best Play and Pulitzer Prize finalist, “In the Next Room,” tells the story of the invention of our most cherished bedroom toy. In the late 1800s doctors invented a new medical device to treat patients afflicted with “female hysteria.” A charming and insightful story of desire, frustration, and sympathy and understanding between the sexes. With the sensibility of a play by George Bernard Shaw or Oscar Wilde as seen through the lyrical lens of one of our finest modern playwrights.

It’s not too late to catch “The Vibrator Play” at Charlotte’s Actor’s Theatre. And, great news: It’s coming to Chapel Hill as well.
