Vibrator Play comes to main stage

This term’s main stage theatre production, “In The Next Room (The Vibrator Play),” will open Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in Harbach Theatre.

The play, written by Sarah Ruhl, explores the Victorian-era medical use of vibrators to cure hysteria in women and men. Other themes include Victorian ignorance of female sexual desire, intimacy, jealousy and the story of Catherine Givings, the protagonist. Liz Carlin-Metz, Smith V. Brand Endowed Chair in Theatre Arts, is directing.

Shows will run through Saturday, March 1, all starting at 7:30 p.m. with doors opening for seating at 7 p.m. Admission is free for current students, $5 for alumni and seniors and $10 for adults.
