In the Next Room, or the vibrator play (2011)
In a prim upper class Victorian home, a gentleman doctor has innocently invented a most extraordinary and mysterious device for treating "hysteria." When his increasingly despondent wife overhears the strange sounds emanating from the operating theatre and sees patients leaving in the pink of health, she is compelled to investigate - even if it means throwing over domesticity for desire. Ranging from the tender to the farcical, this smart comedy ponders marriage and intimacy, and how electricity came along to fuse them.
