Actresses Kathryn Metzger, left, and Allison Altman, right, as Catherine Givings and Sabrina Daldry, respectively, rehearse a scene from the Chautauqua Theater Company's upcoming production of Sarah Ruhl's "In the Next Room (or the vibrator play)," directed by Larissa Kokernot, in Brawdy Theater Studios on June 25, 2016.
In the show, the two actresses play women in the Victorian era who rediscover their own sexuality when Givings's husband introduces them to a mechanism that we know today as a vibrator. In this scene, the two women have had their first experience with the vibrator without their husbands, and Givings is horrified to have experienced her first "paroxysm."
