Description: In a spa town in New York in the late 19th century, enthusiasm for the new electric light bulb is spreading through the homes of the well-to-do citizens. Dr Givings is obsessed with the marvels of technology and has been working with a handy new device, a strange electric-powered box set up in his operating theatre to treat female hysteria. Dr Givings’ first patient emerges from her first session beaming and keen to return for future treatment. But while the good doctor is blithely administering to his patients, his wife, Catherine, a new mother, is left feeling lonely and left out, and forced to take matters into her own hands…

In The Next Room is a provocative, funny, touching and entertaining story about sex, intimacy and equality which is based on historical fact. It was nominated for three 2010 Tony Awards including Best Play.
