Synopsis

Set in the 1880’s and coinciding with the advent of electricity, Dr Givings who specialises in treating women with hysteria is finding that he can achieve spectacular results using a revolutionary therapeutic device. Meanwhile in the parlour adjacent to his consulting room Mrs Givings, her wet nurse and guest listen with intensifying curiosity and wonder to the rapturous sounds emanating from the next room and there follows a fascinating discussion and eventually somewhat embarrassed mutual experimentation. When Mrs Giving’s wet nurse gently suggests that the reactions they describe are the same ones some women experience with their husbands she is met with a stupefied silence followed by dismissive laughter.
