JACKtivites for February 3rd Evening

In the Next Room, or the (Adult Subject Matter) 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). 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.  Written by Sarah Ruhl and Directed by Dr. Popple.
