In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play

January 26 - 28, 2018, Brunner Theatre Mainstage

February 2 - 5, 2018, Brunner Theatre Mainstage

by Sarah Ruhl

In the Next Room, or the vibrator play is a comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity. Set in the 1880s at the dawn of the age of electricity, the play centers on a doctor and his wife and how his new therapy affects their entire household.  In a seemingly perfect, well-to-do Victorian home, proper gentleman and scientist Dr. Givings has innocently invented an extraordinary new device for treating "hysteria" in women (and occasionally men): the vibrator. Adjacent to the doctor's laboratory, his young and energetic wife wonders exactly what is going on in the next room. Trying to tend to their newborn daughter, Mrs. Givings hires a wet nurse whose physical attachment to the baby gives rise to complicated feelings for both women.  When a new "hysterical" patient and her husband bring 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.

Directed by Dr. Popple

Twain's timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Their adventures along the way are hilarious, suspenseful and heartwarming, bringing to life your favorite characters from the novel. Propelled by an award winning bluegrass score from Roger Miller this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.

Glass Menagerie

July 13, 14, 20, 21 at 7:30 p.m.

July 15 and 22 at 2:00 p.m.

by Tennessee Williams

An evocative and deeply personal play, heartfelt and passionate, from one of the 20th Century’s most celebrated playwrights, Tennessee Williams. The Glass Menagerie is seen through the memories of Tom Wingfield, a poet and a dreamer. Constrained by his life working in a warehouse and his tenement apartment, he rebels against the strictures of his controlling mother, Amanda. He escapes through the movies, fulfilling his dreams through the Hollywood greats of the 1930s. Amanda lives by her charm and the steely gentility of her Deep Southern roots, her purpose centered on finding a gentleman caller for her shy and reclusive daughter. But Laura has long since shunned the real world for one of fantasy and escapism – her menagerie of glass animals. One of the most powerful plays of the 20th century, The Glass Menagerie is a tale of love, loss and the disparate hopes and dreams of a family at odds.

Directed by Cory Johnson
