Event Notes


Lolabrickida Theatre’s inaugural production is a Pulitzer Prize Finalist and Tony Awards® nominated play exploring relationships, women's health, sexuality, and much more. In the Next Room or the vibrator play by Sarah Ruhl is a comedic drama set in the 1880s, that explores the complexities of human relationships and the search for fulfillment. The story primarily follows Dr. Givings, a physician who uses a new electrical device to treat "hysteria" in women. As his patients experience newfound sensations and connections, the play explores themes of intimacy, sexuality, and gender roles within Victorian society. It is a funny, thought-provoking, and heartfelt show that illuminates how our society has progressed, regressed, and is still struggling to navigate the complications of gender, mental health, and marriage in today's world.
