In the Next Room (or the vibrator play), by Sarah Ruhl
"A 2010 Tony Award nominee for Best Play and Pulitzer Prize finalist, this charming, playful and insightful story set in the late 1800s centers on a medical device then used by doctors to treat symptoms known as 'female hysteria.' Based on historic fact, In the Next Room is a tale of the desire and frustration experienced by men and women in their search for sympathy and understanding between the sexes. It evokes the sensibility of a play by George Bernard Shaw or Oscar Wilde, as seen through the lyrical lens of one of America’s finest modern playwrights."
