The Yellow Wallpaper

Wed 26 & Thu 27 May • 7:30pm • Full £12 Concs £10 • Professional Theatre

Adapted by Emily Malloy from the novella by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
Presented by Dumb Blonde Theatre and Apricity Theatre

Confined to the attic room of a secluded house, with nothing to distract her, a new mother is left to rest with the hope that peace and quiet will help her recover from the nervous fits she’s been experiencing since the birth of her son. Nothing to distract her, that is, but the grotesque yellow wallpaper…

Combining Charlotte Perkins-Gilman’s terrifying novella with real-life accounts and visceral physicalisation, The Yellow Wallpaper is a suspenseful and unflinching look at a person’s fight with the darkest of elements, both inside and out.

Quentin Crisp: Naked Hope

Wed 28 Apr • 7:30pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

Written and Performed by Mark Farrelly
Directed by Linda Marlowe

Fresh from its Off-Broadway debut and milestone 100th performance, Mark Farrelly’s hugely acclaimed solo play comes to The Rondo.

From a conventional upbringing to global notoriety via The Naked Civil Servant, Quentin Crisp was one of the most memorable figures of the twentieth century. Openly gay as early as the 1930s, Quentin spent decades being beaten up on London’s streets for his refusal to be anything less than himself. His courage, and the philosophy that evolved from those experiences, inspire to the present day. Naked Hope is a glorious, uplifting celebration of the urgent necessity for all of us to be our true selves.

Mark Farrelly’s West End credits include Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? opposite Matthew Kelly. He is directed by EastEnders star Linda Marlowe (Berkoff’s Women).

★★★★ “Brilliant”  Time Out

★★★★ “A masterclass”  Broadway Baby
