Gulfshore Playhouse Gets Audiences Buzzing With IN THE NEXT ROOM OR THE VIBRATOR PLAY

There’s a buzz building at Gulfshore Playhouse, Naples’ premier professional regional theater. That’s thanks to its fourth production of the 2018-19 season, “In the Next Room or The Vibrator Play.” Running from Feb. 16 to March 10, the provocative Tony Award-nominated comedy is sure to get audiences talking.

Written by American playwright and essayist Sarah Ruhl, “In the Next Room” explores the nature of love, intimacy – and electricity. Set in 1880, a well-to-do Victorian doctor’s innocent invention to treat female “hysteria” sends a shock wave through the lives of his patients and his own marriage. His machine gets everyone buzzing throughout the lighthearted but thought-provoking production, especially his young and lively wife, who begins to wonder what her husband is up to in the next room as she tends to their newborn baby. The show shines a spotlight on questions of intimacy and ultimately forces the doctor and his wife to examine their own relationship with naked honesty.

The show is directed by Broadway veteran and Gulfshore Playhouse Associate Artistic Director Jeffrey Binder, who appeared earlier in the season in the theater’s one-man production of “An Iliad.” “In the Next Room” marks Binder’s mainstage directorial debut at Gulfshore Playhouse.
