ASL Interpreted Performance of In the Next Room @ University of Minnesota
November 5, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm$17
Written by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Kate Powers
In the Next Room or The Vibrator Play , a comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity plays November 2-12, opening the 2017-‘18 season. Written by Sarah Ruhl, “one of the most gifted and adventurous American playwrights to emerge in recent years…”(NYTimes), and directed by Kate Powers will be performed in the Stoll Thrust. Set in the 1880s, Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary device for treating "hysteria" in women: the vibrator. Adjacent to the doctor's laboratory, his young and energetic wife wonders exactly what is going on in the next room. Insightful, fresh and funny, its humor touches on race, gender, and power. Mature themes.
