Mackenzie Menter performs Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s famous 1892 tale of a woman’s decent into madness. The unnamed narrator secretly keeps a journal and chronicles her decent into madness while subjected to her doctor-husband’s severe postpartum rest cure. She begins to see that a woman is trapped in the suffocating wallpaper that envelops her room, and she becomes determined - - at all costs - - to free her. Rediscovered and celebrated by feminists and humanists in the 1970s, its powerful atmosphere of mystery and underlying message retains its strength to this day. Original Music and Sound Design by Jennifer Rouse.
