Read full description of the books:



The main reason I read this play now is that I am going to try and make the trip to see it performed at Shepherd University in November.
The play is really interesting, set at the dawn of electricity and during a time when psychology was both early and heavily gender biased. There are too many fascinating theoretical issues at work in the play to do justice to all of them, but some are: gender issues manifested in types of authorities over space, power, and knowledge; racial issues and implicit eugenics (a theoretical framework becoming popular at the time the play is set); clashes between science and 'nature,' science and art, and science and domesticity; repressed same sex desire; (what a modern audeince would identify as) sexual acts performed without sexual desire; questions about parent child relationships and interaction.
Additionally, the play is beautifully written with some parts being touching, some being funny, some thought-provoking.

Read information about the author

Ebook In the Next Room (or the Vibrator Play) read Online! Sarah Ruhl (born 1974) is an American playwright. She is the recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship and the PEN/Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater Award for a distinguished American playwright in mid-career.

Originally, she intended to be a poet. However, after she studied under Paula Vogel at Brown University (A.B., 1997; M.F.A., 2001), she was persuaded to switch to playwriting. Her first play was The Dog Play, written in 1995 for one of Vogel's classes. Her roots in poetry can be seen in the way she uses language in her plays. She also did graduate work at Pembroke College, Oxford.

In September 2006, she received a MacArthur Fellowship. The announcement of that award stated: "Sarah Ruhl, 32, playwright, New York City. Playwright creating vivid and adventurous theatrical works that poignantly juxtapose the mundane aspects of daily life with mythic themes of love and war."

HARRY

Why do you ask me to drive a phone?

CALEB

The idea is great, but sometimes the text suffers

SCARLETT

Contradictory. On the one hand, it pulls in and on the other ...

SETH

The book is really worthy of the bestseller!
