October 21, 22, 25-29, 2011
Wells-Metz Theatre


The explorers of personal freedom and self-awareness are as American as the pioneers of yesterday who journeyed into the wilderness. This humorous, insightful, and affirming play takes us into the world of an adventurous doctor, his unhappy patients, and the medical device that transforms their lives. In the Next Room, or the vibrator play, is an unforgettable comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity. Mature content.

"Insightful, fresh and funny . . . as rich in thought as it is in feeling." The New York Times
