Set in the 1880s, In the Next Room, or the Vibrator Play follows the lives of a young doctor and his wife and the women he is treating for “hysteria” with a newfangled machine that could only be invented by the onset of electricity. This funny and provocative play was nominated for three Tony Awards, a Drama Desk Award, and a Pulitzer Prize nomination for playwright Sarah Ruhl.  The New York Times calls Sarah Ruhl, “… one of the most gifted and adventurous American playwrights to emerge in recent years”

Don Juan Project 

Book by Patrick Shaw

Lyrics by Lorenzo da Ponte

Music by Jason Hoogerhyde

7:30pm | Friday & Saturday
3pm | Sunday
Alma Thomas Theatre

The Don Juan Project, commissioned by Southwestern University in collaboration with the Theatre and Music Departments, offers a reimagination of the semi-historical comedy that pokes fun at and explores the question “Why do good things happen to bad people?” A wonderful new production that focuses on passion, love, and God’s relationship with his defective creation.
