Theatre Reviews

I went to this show because I saw a mem­o­rable play at the Fringe in the ear­ly 1990s and this pro­duc­tion uses the same 19th cen­tu­ry sto­ry (The Yel­low Wall­pa­per) as inspi­ra­tion.

I didn’t know or had for­got­ten that The Yel­low Den fea­tures two of my favourite per­form­ers, Sarah Con­stible and Vic­to­ria Hill. A woman is con­fined in a room with yel­low wall­pa­per for her health,” and writes in a jour­nal she keeps hid­den under her mat­tress. The audi­ence sits onstage with­in the room in which the woman is confined. 

It’s an absorb­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller, and the two actors give com­pelling per­for­mances. I wish I could tell you who direct­ed it, but I didn’t get a pro­gram and I couldn’t find any pro­duc­tion infor­ma­tion online. 

Regard­less, this is a tour de force that I was grate­ful to have seen.
