Beyond the Yellow Wallpaper

May 9-25, 2024

Echo Theatre presents Beyond the Yellow Wallpaper, a World Premiere by Ann Timmons.

Feminist, Unnatural Mother, and Woman Out of Her Time.

Beyond the Yellow Wallpaper is a new historical drama delving into the extraordinary life of feminist author and social reformer, Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Known to many for her semi-autobiographical short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, Charlotte’s work explores the realities of womanhood at the turn of the 20th century. We follow Charlotte’s complicated journey to professional success, despite her ongoing struggle with depression and the unconventional life that shaped her work.

This production is the newest in our Herstory Canon, which includes productions of BROWNIES: A Tale of Texan Women, Vita and Virginia, Sailing to Byzantium, The Ladies of the Camellias, Daisy in the Dreamtime, Bible Women, A Most Dangerous Woman, Or, and It’s my Party!
