By Sarah Ruhl
Directed by Jeanine Thompson

Among the technological innovations of the late 19th Century is the electric vibrator, used by Dr. Givings to treat “hysteria” in his female (and occasionally male) patients. Meanwhile, his wife Catherine struggles with not only an unfulfilled marriage, but also depression over her inability to breastfeed their newborn daughter. Jealousy raises its head as Catherine becomes increasingly frustrated by her husband’s unwillingness to treat her, even as he helps patient after patient.

MacArthur Fellow Sarah Ruhl (The Clean House; Eurydice; Passion Play; Dead Man’s Cell Phone) explores Victorian ignorance of female desire, motherhood, and marriage in this stimulating comedy.
