Press Release written by Sarah Ruhl 
(This play is part of the Kitchen Theatre Company’s Kitchen Sink Series that has support from CFCU.)ITHACA, N.Y. — HOMECOMING PLAYERS continues “Murder and Mayhem Mondays” season with Sarah Ruhl’s “electrifying” comedy, In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play.

Following last month’s hit thriller, Deathtrap, this month’s show promises to “stimulate” your sensitivities—to humor, romance, and (on a more serious note) the quest for women’s autonomy over their own bodies.

If you’ve ever been tempted to listen through the door to startling and mystifying noises coming from the next room—when you weren’t supposed to be snooping—now’s your chance to watch a hilarious and poignant play all about it.

Come find out what the “buzz” and “hysteria” are all about.

— “Victorian repression gets a rude poke in this idiosyncratic rumination on women’s sexual selves.” Variety

— “A true novelty: a sex comedy designed not for sniggering teenage boys — or grown men who wish they were still sniggering teenage boys — but for adults with open hearts and minds.” New York Times

— “A play about longing, and about discovery, and about trying to help people cope with inner conflicts they don’t understand, such as the simultaneous interest in and embarrassment about sexuality that some of us feel.” DC Theatre Scene
