More Info

Due to the significant cost of venue reservation, festival fees, and liability insurance, ticket sales are going toward the cost of production. This means that our cast / crew are working for free, paying their own travel fees, and sourcing their own costumes and props.

Come see us perform!

September 12, 13, and 14 at 8pm at First Unitarian Church of Philadelphia.

Advance tickets can be purchased using the "FringeArts" app or online at https://fringearts.com/event/stripping-the-yellow-wallpaper/. Remaining tickets will be sold at the door for each performance. *Seating is limited - we can only guarantee seats to advance ticket holders*

"Stripping the Yellow Wallpaper" highlights the themes of mental health and feminism springing from Charlotte Perkins Gilman's semi-autobiographical short story, "The Yellow Wallpaper." Published in 1892, it chronicles a woman's descent into psychosis from “the rest cure,” prescribed for her severe postpartum depression. Our play weaves in the resonant and discordant work of other feminists from Gilman's time and our own, including philosopher Mary Whiton Calkins and playwright Adrienne Kennedy.
