In the Next Room

Expanding sexuality, globalization, a bawdy biography, a legendary gunslinger, a Governor General Award-Winning author — Theatre Inconnu is bringing it all to you in 2013!

A play of love and longing, commissioned by Berkeley Repertory Theatre, In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play) illuminates the lives of six lonely people seeking relief from a local doctor — but, despite his expertise with a strange new technology, all they really need is intimacy. It’s a tender tale that takes place in the twilight of the Victorian age, an elegant comedy lit by unexpected sparks from the approaching era of electricity, equality, science, and sexuality.

“A true novelty: a sex comedy for adults with open hearts and minds.” —New York Times
