Overview

"Best Broadway Play of 2009...Ruhl has defied gender and genre orthodoxy to give us a hilarious and moving meditation on the many factors that complicate communication between (and within) the sexes."---Elysa Gardner, USA Today" "In the Next Room is Ruhl's best play to date. Her play-writing is inspired."---John Lahr, New Yorker" "Ruhl is one of the country's brightest playwrights. In the Next Room is a true novelty: a sex comedy designed for adults with open hearts and minds. Insightful, fresh and funny, the play is as rich in thought as it is in feeling."---Charles Isherwood, New York Times" "It's safe to say that In the Next Room goes where no Broad-way show has gone before. Ruhl presents something a lot more daring than nudity: women's discovery of their own bodies and their own pleasure... A play that's smart, delicate and very, very funny."---Elisabeth Vincentelli, New York Post" "Ruhl has written a smart, charming, iridescently funny-serious jewel."---John Simon, Bloomberg News/Bloomberg.Com" "A breathtakingly inventive addition to Ruhl's singular body of work."---Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times" "In the Next Room or the vibrator play hovers at the dawn of electricity when enthusiasm for the light bulb gave rise to a handy new instrument to treat female hysteria. Ruhl, with her singular theatrical lyricism, has crafted a masterful new comedy, which went on to become a Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony Award nominee for Best Play." Sarah Ruhl's plays include, The Clean House (finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and recipient of the Susan Smith Blackburn Award); Dead Man's Cell Phone (Helen Hayes Award for Best New Play); Passion Play (Kennedy Center's Fourth Freedom Forum Play-writing Award); Eurydice; Melancholy Play; Late: a cowboy song and Orlando. She is a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship.

    In The Next Room...

    I was required to read this book for a grad class I am a part of. I am not a huge reader of plays but I must admit this read more like a novel and I enjoyed it very much. I then saw a stage adaptation of this play which added to my enjoyment.
