Yellow Wallpaper

The Yellow Wallpaper 2009

by Charlotte Perkins Gilman adapted by Fiona Ross for Red Dog. Directed by Sue Colverd

In a new adaptation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ Fiona Ross produced a lavish script combining one woman’s increasing despair in triplicate. All three actresses play the same character all on stage at the same time, mirroring and enhancing a woman’s descent into madness. Though the Yellow Wallpaper is a work of fiction, it was based on Gilman’s own experience.

“It was refreshing, full of new ideas and expertly enacted by an accomplished cast.” Jon Andriesson, Stroud News and Journal

“Both claustrophobic and immense, the set and the intimacy of the Everyman’s Other Space succeeds in uniting the audience with the actors in the sense of foreboding and helplessness. This was refreshing theatre.” Gloucester Echo
