<p>Full-Length Play, Dramatic Comedy. By Sarah Ruhl.</p>

<p>In a seemingly perfect, well-to-do Victorian home, gentleman and scientist Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary new device for treating ‘hysteria’ in women (and occasionally men): the vibrator. 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 their 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.</p>

<p>“Smart, delicate and very, very funny!” – New York Post</p>

<p>“Insightful, fresh and funny, the play is as rich in thought as it is in feeling” – The New York Times</p>
