In The Next Room, Or The Vibrator Play
Artwork and Graphic Design by Cody Hom
Just before the turn of the 19th Century, distinguished and established Dr. Givings invents what he believes will cure hysteria in women by inducing paroxysms, inadvertently introducing the world to the first vibrator. While curing womenof the town – as well as the occasional and rare instances of male hysteria – the introduction of a wet nurse to the Giving household brings unforeseen complications. And in the middle of this whirlwind of a strange new world, Dr. and Mrs.Givings attempt to navigate their own marital struggles all while exploring the true meaning of love.
