IN THE NEXT ROOM OR THE VIBRATOR PLAY

Michael Cerveris did a full frontal at the end of this play during its Broadway run. Let’s see if the 3rd year NYU students version will do the same…

From the press release:
In the Next Room
By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Alicia Dhyanna House
April 25th- 28th at Atlantic’s Stage 2 Theater
Featuring NYU third-year students

In the Next Room or the vibrator play is a comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity in the 1880s. In a seemingly perfect, well-to-do Victorian home, proper gentleman and scientist Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary new device for treating ‘hysteria’ in women (and occasionally men): the vibrator. Adjacent to the doctor’s laboratory, his young and energetic wife tries to tend to their newborn daughter – and wonders exactly what is going on in the next room. When a new ‘hysterical’ patient and her husband bring a wet nurse and their own complicated relationship into the doctor’s home, Dr. and Mrs. Givings must examine the nature of their own marriage, and what it truly means to love someone.
