During the Victorian era, women exhibiting symptoms ranging from anxiety and insomnia to shortness of breath and emotional instability received a diagnosis of hysteria. One of the various medical treatments for the 19th-century ailment, the electric vibrator was used to help afflicted patients achieve orgasm and find release. Acclaimed playwright Sarah Ruhl explores this curious practice in her comedy In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play). Lead by director Cláudio Medeiros, Middlebury College students stage this imaginative work about a doctor whose progressive methods lead his wife to reconsider her marriage and her own body.
