The Yellow Wallpaper


A woman is confined to her room after the birth of her child, not even allowed to write. But the woman’s mind cannot rest and soon she begins to see a figure in the wallpaper, a figure that wants to get out…

The Yellow Wallpaper is a shrewd blend of physical theatre and subversive text. Adapted from the classic gothic novella, the performance examines 19th-century patriarchal views through a modern lens, moving from controlled precision to wild abandon – ironic and witty, eerie and unnerving.
