The Mill Theatre presents Yellow Wallpaper, adapted by Lorelei Sturm, directed by Jaclyn Biskup.
The Yellow Wallpaper is a classic American short story written in 1892. Semi-autobiographical, it describes the experience of a woman living in confinement as a cure for what we now know of as postpartum depression. Overwhelmed with loneliness and boredom, she becomes obsessed with the wallpaper in the room and gradually loses touch with reality. It sheds light on issues that still have relevance today and is filled with beautiful images and language. The stage piece will be movement based and experimental in style allowing for a heightened theatrical expressiveness that hooks into the heart of the story.
Performances will begin August 24 and run through September 14 at Chicago's Chopin Theatre.
