CTE Presents Stimulating "In the Next Room (or the Vibrator Play)"

Shocking and funny, In the Next Room (or the Vibrator Play) addresses love, intimacy, and the advent of electricity in the Victorian Age. Central Washington University’s Central Theatre Ensemble will have you gasping with laughter in this rollicking, and yet at times poignant, look at love and sex in an era of repression.

Written by Sarah Ruhl, who received a MacArthur Fellowship and the PEN/Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater Award, In the Next Room was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Best Play in 2010.

In the Next Room (or the Vibrator Play) will be performed at 7:30 p.m. March 2, 3, 8, 9,11; at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, March 5; and at 2:00 p.m. March 10 in the Milo Smith Tower Theatre.
