By Sarah Ruhl Directed by Prof. Derek Goldman

Written by celebrated MacArthur Award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl, this Pulitzer Prize finalist play also received three 2010 Tony Award nominations for its Broadway production, including Best New Play. Set in a seemingly perfect, well-to-do Victorian home, proper gentleman and scientist Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary new device for treating “hysteria” in women (and occasionally men): the vibrator. Adjacent to the doctor’s laboratory, his young and energetic wife tries to tend to their newborn daughter—and wonders exactly what is going on in the next room. This production wraps up the Georgetown University Theater & Performance Studies Program’s 2016-17 season: Discover and Celebrate. Adult content, nudity.
