An immersive experience inspired by the classic short story and devised by the company. A desperate woman attempts to escape her stifling reality surrounded by haunting yellow wallpaper. This adaptation explores the classic tale for a modern audience through movement, puppetry, and prose.

PLEASE NOTE: This production is immersive. In order to give you the best experience, this means the number of chairs will be limited in each performance. We encourage you to explore the space and to move around. We ask that you please observe “subway etiquette” when occupying a seat, meaning please only use a chair if you require it for mobility or health reasons.

If you have questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at
