In The Next Room (or The Vibrator Play)

Sarah Ruhl

In 1880s New York, well-respected gentleman and scientist Dr Givings has just started using his new medical tool, the vibrator, to treat ‘hysterical’ women (and some men!) in his operating theatre. Next door in the living room, his wife wonders what on earth is going on in the next room, while trying to care for their newborn baby. When Mr and Mrs Daldry arrive, bringing their wetnurse with them, Dr and Mrs Givings are forced to examine their own marriage, and what it means to be truly intimate.

Based on true historical fact, this play is a comedy about intimacy, marriage, and the vibrator.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement. 

This venue is wheelchair accessible.
