Ineffective, Ambitious, Disappointing, Evocative, Good acting

See it if u want to see a lofty, earnest attempt to adapt Gilman's classic feminist short story of an oppressed & depressed 19th C woman to the stage.

Don't see it if u hope for an adaptation that gets to the heart of CPG's character, finds her voice & fully reveals the desperation of the 19th C Everywoman Read more

Thought-provoking, Intense, Confusing, Clever

See it if Effort is there. Great idea to use the memoir. Nice look at mental health issues then and now.

Don't see it if Yellow wallpaper needs more "there on the screen." Too much dialogue lost................. Our confusion, no curtain call?

Exploratory use of multimedia, Should be a solo, Inert, Misses the mark, Ambitious

See it if into multimedia effects or literature adapted for stage. Probably less objectionable if you have no preconceptions. Brief!

Don't see it if you dislike too much prerecorded material. Good actors underchallenged. Doesn’t capture spirit/perspective of Gilman's writing. Read more

Safe, Anticlimactic, Thought-provoking, Delicate, Quiet

See it if You enjoy the short story or period pieces in general, you want to see some beautiful design elements, the piece has a grace you rarely see

Don't see it if You are expecting something daring or innovating, you are expecting raunchy downtown theatre, this piece has room for more danger

Confusing, Thought-provoking

See it if a quiet, minimalist piece based on a short story about mental health. actors do well with the material they have in the setting

Don't see it if we didn’t get the video so not sure what that adds to it & if i can score properly. would have liked to see the yellow wallpaper honestly
