Directed by Adriana Baer

Enter the home of Dr. Givings: husband, doctor, inventor and healer of feminine hysteria. As this man of science pioneers new therapies for women in the dawning age of electricity, his young wife Catherine begins to wonder what exactly is going on behind the closed door of his operating theatre. In the Next Room, or the vibrator play is a wickedly humorous tale of sex, intimacy and the discovery of pleasure.

In the Next Room or the vibrator play contains adult themes and nudity.

Performances run approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes with one intermission.
“But as Ruhl writes it, and Adriana Baer directs it for Profile, and her sparkling cast acts it, the joke’s a lead-in to some more probing explorations of gender, tenderness, emotional fulfillment, and the dawning of women’s rights…Profile’s In the Next Room is quite lovely to look at, with an ornate yet open set by Stephen Dobay and some ravishing period costumes by Sarah Gahagan.” – Bob Hicks, Oregon ArtsWatch

By David Ives
adapted from the comedy by Pierre Corneille
Directed By Dámaso Rodriguez

TICKETS: *special price: ASL seating can be secured by emailing boxoffice@artistsrep.org or calling 503.241.1278. Mention the code ASLART and get 2 for 1 tickets!  

"From the brilliant, comedic mind of David Ives (All in the Timing, Venus in Fur) comes a hilarious “translaptation” of this 17th Century French romp, replete with wild misassumptions, mistaken identities and tangled truths. Played out in outrageously clever verse, expect lightning-fast pace, anachronistic twists and a hip cast, with plenty of nods to Corneille’s neo-classical original.

Sound Design by Resident Artist Rodolfo Ortega

NW Premiere

RUNNING TIME: Approximately 2 hours plus one intermission."
