Witness one woman's journey on the road to madness in the one-act interpretation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman's The Yellow Wallpaper, divided into thirteen fated 'journal entries scored for two voices, dancer, and chamber ensemble.

The story depicts the effect of extreme loneliness and solitude, common to women of that station, on the narrator's mental health and her descent into psychosis. She becomes obsessed with the wallpaper: "It is the strangest yellow, that wall-paper! It makes me think of all the yellow things I ever saw – not beautiful ones like buttercups, but old foul, bad yellow things. But there is something else about that paper – the smell! ... The only thing I can think of that it is like is the color of the paper! A yellow smell."
