THE YELLOW WALLPAPER

by Laurence Strangio and Annie Thorold

“It is the strangest yellow, that wallpaper! It makes me think of all the yellow things I ever saw – not beautiful ones like buttercups, but old foul, bad yellow things … It is like a bad dream. It creeps all over the house.”

A recuperating woman, a misguided husband, a hideously papered bedroom. The Yellow Wallpaper is a shrewd blend of physical performance and subtly subversive text – a gothically patterned tale which challenges the boundaries between care and control, madness and liberation.

Part of the 2019 VCE Drama Playlist.
Text by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Adapted & devised by Laurence Strangio and Annie Thorold
