“…a sparkling cast… and quite lovely to look at [with] ravishing period costumes…” – Oregon ArtsWatch

“There are laughs aplenty in this tight period piece… An able cast agilely steps from the comic to the tragic…”  – Portland Monthly Magazine

“… realism at its best … a rare play that takes meaningful risks… [it] hits you with images so poetic and destabilizing that you're shocked to attention… I think [this is] why most of us bother to go to the theater in the first place. Why pay up just to see the same safe stories that leave you cold?… We want to feel something, and with a production like this one, we do.” – Portland Mercury

Enter the home of Dr. Givings: husband, doctor, inventor and healer of feminine hysteria. As this man of science pioneers new therapies for women in the dawning age of electricity, his young wife Catherine begins to wonder what exactly is going on behind the closed door of his operating theatre. In the Next Room, or the vibrator play is a wickedly humorous tale of sex, intimacy and the discovery of pleasure.

Creative Team: Stephen Dobay, Kristeen Coster, Sarah Gahagan, Sharath Patel, Kaye Blankenship, Olivia Murphy, Jillian Gibson, Bailey Maxwell and D Westerholm*
