Directed by Chris Millado, In The Next Room or The Vibrator Play is set in the 1880s when electricity is still a novelty.

‘In The Next Room or The Vibrator Play’ is a provocative and hilarious take on marriage, nature of intimacy, passion and true love

In his practice, Dr. Givings, a kind yet overly analytical scientist, has invented a device to relieve “hysteria” in both men and women. He called the brilliant new device a vibrator.

When Elizabeth, a grieving wet nurse, is brought in to care for the Givings’ baby, and Mrs. Sabrina Daldry, an anxious, depressed patient arrives for treatment, the Givings are forced to confront the realities of their own marriage, their love for one another, and the nature of intimacy– all without the help of an electrical current.

Also part of the cast are Caisa Borromeo, Hans Eckstein, Jef Flores, Cara Barredo, and Tami Monsod.
