Alice has not formed the correct bond with her baby. That’s what her doctor and husband say. Isolated from her child and banished to the country for ‘rest’, Alice falls further down the rabbit hole of her own mind. The wallpaper haunts her. But is she really sick, or are there more sinister forces at play?
Full length stage play inspired by Charlotte Perkins Gilman's 1892 gothic classic. Headlined at the Omnibus Theatre (Clapham, London) throughout July 2018.
