A comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity.

Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary new device for treating hysteria in women (and occasionally men): the vibrator.  When a new hysterical patient and her husband bring a wet nurse and their own complicated relationship into the doctor's home, Dr. and Mrs. Givings must examine the nature of their own marriage, and what it truly means to love someone.

Written by Sarah Ruhl. Staged reading presented in partnership with Red Herring.
