Theatre Review: In the Next Room or, The Vibrator Play Delivers a Good Time

I’ve been lucky enough to be raised in a society which has spread so much awareness of the plight of females and our right to pleasure as equals to men during sex, so why did I feel so uncomfortable seeing something so natural occurring in a fictional capacity? The writing of In the Next Room is extraordinary for this very reason: It continually challenges you as a viewer to question not only the ways in which you consciously think but the hidden reactions and accompanying internalised attitudes you did not realise you harboured.
