An adaptation of the American Gothic novella The Yellow Wallpaper

What lies in the dark corners of the mind?

A young doctor believing his wife needs to rest as the result of a nervous condition rents an idyllic colonial mansion for his family to spend the summer in. His wife finds herself confined to an attic room, but there’s something not quite right about it. Barred windows, torn wallpaper and scratches on the floor – how did they get there? Were they always there? And who lived in the room before her?

Trapped and cut off from the world, she begins to obsess over the wallpaper, and what’s waiting behind it. Struggling to make sense of its twisting patterns, what she discovers draws her closer and closer to the edge.

This might be a ghost story or worse yet, it might not.

The Yellow Wallpaper is a semiautobiographical story written in 1892 which charts a young woman’s descent into madness, wrestling with issues that remain as relevant today as the day it was written.

Premiered at the 2011 ABSOLUT Fringe Festival. This production is supported by Rough Magic Production Support.

“Absolute joy of a perfect production,” Sunday Independent

“…an absolutely brilliant production of what is a very powerful piece of work…” RTE’s The View

Celebrating 20 Years in the Big Blue Building

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…

Hi there,  How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…
