In order to heal his loving wife, John brings fragile Jane to a remote Victorian house where she can get plenty of light and fresh air. Jane is set up in the attic – where there are bars on the windows, and she is surrounded by the most atrocious yellow wallpaper. Throughout the summer, the wallpaper changes and warps, and a woman comes forth from the wallpaper. Jane knows she must free the woman before she leaves the care of the attic. John watches on in horror, as Jane descends into madness.Takes place in the 1950s. A blend of live performance and animation. Based on the short story by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

A well done and intense horror story about a young woman who may or may not be losing her mind, staying in a house that may or may not be haunted. The interactive video wall was put to use to good effect. Actress Tatum Langton gives a standout performance as the main character who keeps us guessing about her true mental state!

The actors did an admirable job with the script they were given. Tatum Langton, as Jane, was brilliant. Especially since the majority of her part required her to react to what was happening around her. Matt Hudacs, as John, walked the line between caring/condescending husband perfectly.

An inventive approach to a psychological thriller. The strong performance from the lead actress and the animation kept the show engaging and brought it to a whole new level. At times I thought the scenes were a little repetitive, but I think that was to highlight the feeling of isolation and depression of the main character. The acting was excellent. The animation was well-done. I thought the ending was a little abrupt, but overall I thought the play was great.

Barrett uses truly impressive video effects (by Steven and Kevin Hilton) to create the yellow wallpaper and the images and sounds emanate within and from it, calling to Jane.

A very old school and ambitious approach to psychological horror. The visual effect of the wall itself never overwhelmed the story and the lead actress pulled off a very tricky role. I imagined watching this in black & white on Turner Classic Movies. The main actress was so crucial to pulling this off and she did great. If we didn't believe her then we couldn't stay invested in her story. She really helps sell our suspension of disbelief. My one nitpick would be to maybe just add a bit more clarity on what may have happened back at her original home and then the very ending, which might help some patrons who have a tough time getting horror. I understood it but I just wonder about those who might not be as into genre.
