Reno, NV.  Brüka Theatre presents In The Next Room, or The Vibrator Play.   This comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity is written by award winning playwright Sarah Ruhl and Directed by Karen Chandler.  Nominated for three Tony awards, the play is set in the 1880s at the dawn of the age of electricity and based on the bizarre historical fact that doctors used vibrators to treat 'hysterical' women (and some men). Ruhl centers her play on "how we separate our bodily functions and labor and love" examining the nature of marriage and what it truly means to love someone.  In The Next Room, or the vibrator play premiered at Berkeley Rep in 2009.  No one under the age of 17 recommended. 

In The Next Room, or the vibrator play opens Friday, January 27, 2012 followed by a post show opening night champagne reception. In The Next Room (or the vibrator play) shows for 13 total performances: January 27 & 28.  February 2, 3, 4, 9, 10, 11, 15 (February 15th is a special Wednesday night show) 16, 17, 18, 2012.  There is a Sunday matinee on February 12  @ 2 PM followed by a talk back with the company. The doors open a half an hour before curtain time.
