The Rondo Theatre Company are proud to announce that the Autumn Production 2016 will be Sarah Ruhl’s amazing, ‘In The Next Room or The Vibrator Play’.  Performing at the Rondo Theatre, Larkhall, Bath from 23 – 26 November 2016.

Set at the dawn of electricity, in the late 1800’s, our production transposes the action from New York City to Victorian London.  Dr Givings unique ‘procedure’ for relieving the symptoms of female hysteria have found favour with various patients – providing them with a certain ‘something’ missing in their daily lives. His procedures are, of course, administered on a purely scientific basis.  The good doctors wife on the other hand, starved of affection, is desperate for some passion in her life. Ruhl’s play covers subjects as diverse as race, religion, sex, equality, desire, motherhood and the odd paroxysm – all with a darkly comic touch of true Victorian awkwardness – ensuring the play is a delight to watch.

Inspired by ‘The Technology of Orgasm’ by Rachel P. Maines, the play was nominated for three Tony Awards on its first run in 2009.

We are pleased to have Lovehoney, The Sexual Happiness People, as our Platinum Sponsor for this production: www.lovehoney.co.uk
