Classic Cuts: The Yellow Wallpaper

Directed by Sacha Kyle

Featuring Hannah Donaldson, Sandy Nelson and Katie Armstrong

“I can’t stand this room.  I never saw a worse wallpaper in my life. The colour is repellent, almost revolting: a smouldering, unclean yellow, strangely faded by the slow turning sunlight. It is a dull yet lurid orange in some places, a sickly sulphur tint in others. I wish I could get well faster. This wallpaper looks at me as if it KNEW what a vicious influence it had.”

Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s classic Gothic tale of misunderstood mental health and marriage transfers to the stage in a modern reworking, showing that the themes are all too relevant over 100 years on.
