July 1 - 6 | 'The Yellow Wallpaper' @ Anacostia Arts Center


Pallas Theatre Collective presents The Yellow Wallpaper, a haunting new chamber musical based on the early feminist short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. After the birth of their first child, a well-meaning physician confines his depressed wife to the upstairs bedroom of an isolated summer home. With no physical or mental outlet and only her sister-in-law Jennie for companionship, the wife grows obsessed with the tattered yellow wallpaper covering her room. The wallpaper’s intricate patterns soon begin to move in her mind, pushing her to madness. At the intersection of classic musical theater and contemporary classical music, Sarah Taylor Ellis and Lane Williamson adapt this gripping story into a provocative new theatrical work. Get your first look at this haunting new musical on May 21st as part of our 2014 New Musical Premier-a-thon!
