Join us for two MUST SEE performances (Aug 19 and 20) of a staged reading of a new play, Yellow Wallpaper 2.0 2020, by Jennifer Maisel, a participant in the Eugene O’Neill Foundation’s Travis Bogard Artist in Residence program. Maisel offers a modern meditation on Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s 1892 short story, “The Yellow Wallpaper,” about a Victorian housewife driven to insanity when her physician husband prescribes isolation in an upstairs nursery as a treatment for her “nervous depression.” Maisel’s protagonist is a professor trying to pen an essay about Perkins Gilman while enduring a 21st-century version of isolation in COVID lockdown… Listen to Jennifer discuss the process.
