The Yellow Wallpaper
About The Yellow Wallpaper
“He asked me all sorts of questions, pretending to be very loving and kind."
Confined to rest and separated from her newborn child, a woman struggles to come to terms with a mental health diagnosis. As she vacillates between self-assurance and doubt, the yellow wallpaper that decorates her room becomes an unusual source of comfort. Originally published in 1892, Charlotte Perkins Gilman's searing indictment of the 19th century medical community quickly became a classic of early American literature. This new adaptation and multimedia staging provides an intimate look at a deteriorating mental state and how the world of medicine has and continually doubts women.
