In The Next Room
A hilarious and heart-warming story of self-discovery and the power of one woman.
Written by Sarah Ruhl. Directed by Steven Jones.
Ultimately a love story that illuminates with a light touch how much control men had over women's lives, bodies and thoughts, even their most intimate sensations. It is 1880 and the dawn of an early electrical appliance used to induce 'paroxysm' as a treatment for women's hysteria. Dr Givings' wife, Christine, is bored, frustrated and growing increasingly curious as to what is going on in the next room.
