They say: At the dawn of the electrical age, a new medical device is developed to treat and pacify "hysterical" women, but it unknowingly produces a very different result. Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright Sarah Ruhl, author of The Clean House and Dead Man's Cell Phone, shares this story of repressed sexuality and physical exploration with equal doses of humor and emotion.


Their upcoming season: The 2010–2011 season begins with a Vibrator and ends with Bootycandy — need we say more? It's a focused and poignant exploration of our attitudes toward gender, age, race, and sexuality in a manner that's uniquely Woolly.


We say: Now that 20something and I have officially tied the knot, we are so excited to get back into DC theater. And just in time for the 2010-2011 season! What better way to kick off the season than a Pay-What-You-Can performance at Woolly? The Vibrator Play received praise during its run in New York, so Woolly has brought it down to DC to start a season sure to provoke discussion and a little controversy. We attended their preview of the season earlier this summer and Artistic Director Howard Shalwitz said that following a season focused on issues of society and race, they decided to go all the way and focus on something a little more intimate. 20something and I are looking forward to the season and are thrilled to be back. We hope you'll join us as we return to regular blogging and theater-going
