Photo Flash: RedWit Theatre Presents IN THE NEXT ROOM OR THE VIBRATOR PLAY
Set at the dawn of the age of electricity and based on the bizarre hypothesis that Victorian doctors used vibrators to treat 'hysterical' women (and some men), this play centers around a doctor, his wife, the patients, and their respective households through an exploration of this new invention that has the potential to change everything.
In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play explores the danger of being denied language to describe your experience, the power women wield through ownership of their sexuality, and the pursuit of freedom through the destruction of binaries. By pulling this story to a contemporary realm, our production challenges how much progress has actually been made since the notoriously prudish Victorian era. In this production we imagine a new world order that demolishes extant power structures provoking the question: where do we go from here?
