In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play) by Sarah Ruhl
Directed by: Victoria Shepherd Performance dates: April 17 – May 2, 2020

In late 19th century America, an enterprising young physician takes advantage of the dawn of electricity to employ a new mechanism to ease female “hysteria”. Meanwhile, his devoted but desperately unhappy wife takes charge of her own fulfillment and awakening. This daring play explores the subjugated world of an upper middle class wife and mother with humour, compassion and enlightenment.

THE ROLES: Alumnae Theatre Company is committed to non-traditional casting and to including talented actors of all races, backgrounds, and ages in our productions.

  • Catherine Givings: wife of Dr. Givings and mother to Letitia, a woman late 20’s/early 30’s and full of life, but sexually frustrated with her marriage.
  • Dr. Givings: Catherine's husband, a man in his forties and a specialist in gynecological and hysterical disorders.
  • Sabrina Daldry : Dr. Givings' patient, a pianist in her early thirties struggling with hysteria and infertility.
  • Leo Irving: Another patient of Dr. Givings, an English artist in his twenties or thirties.

  • Elizabeth: A housekeeper, and later wet nurse, a Black woman in her early thirties.
