November 30 – December 9

CORE is bringing the notable short story The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman to The Little Theater of Norfolk.

The story follows a woman, confined to a room on doctor's orders to help ease her state of mind, as she tries to break free both mentally and physically. Appealing to so many schools of thought, the story has been hailed by feminists as a condemnation of sexism residing in the medical profession and also by psychotherapists who claim it to be a resounding account of the descent into madness. This story, however, is so much more than that; Gilman herself stated “the story was not intended to drive people crazy, but to save people from being driven crazy, and it worked.”

Originally produced locally in 2007 and toured internationally in 2008 to rave reviews, CORE's cast of 9 is bringing back this compelling story of a woman walking the line of sanity.

This November come climb into the wallpaper with us… It's nice on the other side.
