Norton Clapp Theater, Jones Hall, University of Puget Sound, Tacoma, WA
In the Next Room, a contemporary Broadway play that was selected as a 2010 Pulitzer Prize finalist and nominated for three Tony Awards, will be staged at University of Puget Sound this fall. The provocative and touching comedy, set in Victorian times, is described by director Sara Freeman ’95 as an entertainment that is “both happy and sad, outrageous and full of heart.” In the Next Room (or The Vibrator Play) will be performed at 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 1–2, and again on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings, Nov. 7–9, in Norton Clapp Theater, Jones Hall on campus. A matinee will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9. Featuring mature themes and sexual content, the performance is most suitable for those who are high school age and above. Written by American playwright Sarah Ruhl, the play’s story revolves around the prim Victorian medical practice and home life of Dr. Givings and his wife, Catherine. Dr. Givings, fascinated with the marvels of technology, stumbles upon a mysteriously effective means of treating “hysteria” in his female patients. “In the Next Room is like a box within a box within a box,” Freeman says. “The play is set in an age hovering at the dawn of electricity, and it uses that past setting to really speak to people today about marriage, identity, love, gender, and art.” The production features a cast and stage crew of Puget Sound students from all four years of the academic program. Scene design is by Kurt Walls and costume design by Mishka Navarre. In the Next Room is presented by the Department of Theatre Arts at University of Puget Sound. Admission is $11 for the general public and $7 for seniors (55+), military personnel, students, and Puget Sound students, faculty, and staff.
