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.

HP Lovecraft: Gallery of Screams

Sat 15 May • 8pm • Full £16 Concs £14 • Professional Theatre

Two tales of Eldritch Horror
Adapted and Performed by R M Lloyd Parry

“Any magazine-cover hack can splash paint around and call it a ‘Witches’ Sabbath or ‘Portrait of the Devil.’ But only a great painter can make it scare you…”

In these two tales of terror by HP Lovecraft, the American master of the weird tale, an art critic and a philosopher get pushed to very edge of sanity by the images and sounds they confront.

Pickman’s Model introduces us to the uncannily brilliant work of Richard Upton Pickman – a genius shunned by the artistic establishment because of his sickening canvases. It is paired here with The Music of Eric Zann, an eerie and baffling tale that Lovecraft himself counted as a personal favourite.

Robert Lloyd Parry has spent the last 14 years enacting The M R James Project, a series of one-man shows based on classic English ghost stories. Here he crosses the Atlantic to pay tribute to James’s exact contemporary – a stranger, sadder man but one with an arguably even greater talent for bringing nightmares to life.

“Utterly mesmerizing” The Washington Post on The M R James Project
