THE YELLOW WALLPAPER

Omnibus Theatre
June 2018

by Ruby Lawrence

Alice has not formed the correct bond with her baby. That’s what her doctor and husband say. Isolated from her child and banished to the country for ‘rest’, Alice falls further down the rabbit hole of her own mind. The wallpaper haunts her. But is she really sick, or are there more sinister forces at play?

★★★★★ ‘If you don’t see anything else this year, then make sure to get to this’ (London Theatre 1, The Soul of Wittgenstein)

Based on the cult short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Another Soup returned to Omnibus Theatre, after huge success with The Soul of Wittgenstein, with a haunting cautionary tale for the modern age.
