Agape Theatre is proud to announce a free, one-night-only Workshop Production of THE YELLOW WALLPAPER, an exciting new adaptation of the classic short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. The performance will be held in the Hewlett Room at the Georgetown Public Library on Saturday, November 12th.
Based on the 1892 short story of the same name, THE YELLOW WALLPAPER tells the story of a young woman, Jane, as she grapples with a severe depression which her physician/husband, John, laughs off as a “slight hysterical tendency.” Secluded in a small nursery and under her John’s domineering care, Jane slowly loses grip on her sanity, especially as she becomes increasingly obsessed with the room’s yellow wallpaper. This Gothic-era psychological thriller is not to be missed.
THE YELLOW WALLPAPER plays the Hewlett Room of the Georgetown Public Library for one night only, Saturday, November 12th at 7:30pm. A discussion with the cast and playwright will immediately follow the performance. Seats are assigned and can be reserved at no charge at www.ticketor.com/agapetheatre or by calling 512-88-STAGE. Seats in the first 2 rows may be reserved with a $10 donation, and seats in the 3rd or 4th row may be reserved with a $5 donation.
Running time: 2 hours and 30 minutes with one intermission.
