This 2010 Tony-nominated comedy about marriage, intimacy and electricity is one of Broadway’s latest mega-hits. Set in the Victorian era, just before corseted women shed their inhibitions, this funny, provocative, tender and marvelously entertaining play has generated excitement from East coast to West.
“A spirited and stimulating new comedy from one of the country’s brightest young playwrights.” —New York Times
“…a breathtakingly inventive addition to Ruhl’s singular body of work.” —San Francisco Chronicle

About Jungle Theater
Founded by Bain Boehlke in 1991 in a storefront space at the corner of Lake Street and Lyndale Avenue in South Minneapolis, the Jungle Theater quickly established a loyal following and received widespread critical acclaim for its productions. In 1999, the theater moved into its permanent home: an intimate 150-seat space around the corner from its original location. In addition to the Jungle’s main stage productions of classic and contemporary plays, the theater also maintains community arts education and outreach programs which serve the Greater Metro area, and reflect the theater’s ongoing commitment to neighborhood and community.
Over the past 21 years, the Jungle Theater has had a substantial impact on the Twin Cities theater scene, having established a reputation for excellence that stems from a commitment to high artistic standards and the contributions of many respected and celebrated local artists. A flagship example of the transformative power of the performing arts, the Jungle plays a continuing and vital role in the Lyn-Lake neighborhood’s economic, social, and cultural development.
