Directed by Anika Thompson
Northland Premiere

A comedy about marriage, intimacy, and electricity. 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 tries to tend to their newborn daughter – and wonders exactly what is going on in the next room. 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.

Set in the 1880s at the dawn of the age of electricity and based on the bizarre historical fact that doctors used vibrators to treat 'hysterical' patients, this funny, touching and insightful play debuted on Broadway to rave reviews and was nominated for 3 2010 Tony Awards. Now, for the first time, it comes to the Northland.

A sex comedy designed not for sniggering teenage boys — but for adults with open hearts and minds." – New York Times
