The Yellow Wallpaper
At the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion.
Written in 1892 “to stop people from being driven crazy,” Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” is an unforgettable tale of psychological horror. A doctor brings his wife to an old mansion to try and cure her of nervous depression following the birth of their child. The woman becomes obsessed with the yellow wallpaper adorning her prison-like attic room, and terrified by the things that creep out of the walls at night. In partnership with the Mutter Museum, the Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion presents “The Yellow Wallpaper” as a one woman show starring Jennifer Summerfield, adapted and directed by Josh Hitchens. It may be a ghost story. Even worse, it may not be Cost: $30, Member cost: $25
