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
