In The Next Room, or the Vibrator Play

A Delightful Romantic Comedy Castle Hill Players Presents
The Pavilion Theatre From 28 Jul – 19 Aug
Written By Sarah Ruhl And Directed By Meredith Jacobs

Castle Hill Players return with their fourth play for 2023. Provocatively titled, this romantic comedy will entertain and intrigue under the direction of the talented Meredith Jacobs. Renowned for high quality, local theatre in the Hills, be sure to get along to the gem that is the Pavilion Theatre.

In the Next Room, or the vibrator play is a provocative, funny and touching story about a doctor and his young wife.

Set in 1880s New York, enthusiasm is growing among the well-to-do for the miraculous new electric light bulb. The earnest Doctor Givings however, has been working on his own strange electrical device, designed to cure female hysteria … the Chattanooga Vibrator.

Curious and not a little frustrated, his wife Catherine watches as more than one patient leaves with a renewed flush of health and a desire to return for further treatment. As a mere bystander in her husband’s world, she must take matters into her own hands to discover what is going on in the next room.

“Ruhl has written a smart, charming, iridescently funny-serious jewel.” Bloomberg News
