WFT is proud to present our first show of 2024: The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

Trapped in a room to cure her “hysteria” a young wife and mother is encouraged to rest and not participate in any mentally stimulating activities. But when there is no one to talk to, save herself, she begins to see a woman creeping in the wallpaper in her room and spirals into madness.

The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman is a classic and thrilling short story published in 1892 that follows the harrowing story of a woman given “rest cure” to treat her hysteria.

Windsor Feminist Theatre’s stage adaptation will explore the same themes from the original story, bringing them to a new audience.

When: January 19-20, 25-27 | 8pm – doors open at 7:30pm.
Where: The Shadowbox Theatre | 1501 Howard Ave, Windsor.
Tickets: General admission- $15, Student admission- $10

Tickets can be purchased from eventbrite or at the door.

There will be a Q&A session after the play where we will discuss the short story, history, and current implications.

Rebecca S. Mickle is a singer, actress, and writer from Amherstburg, Ontario. She received her Bachelor of Music in Classical Voice from The University of Windsor and her Master of Music in Classical and Operatic Vocal Performance from Wayne State University. Mickle has performed in countless productions in Canada and the United States, most recently playing Madam de Sade in WFT’s production of Dominatrix on Trial.

New WFT Artistic Director: Rebecca Mickle

Rebecca has worked in many capacities in the regional, international, and provincial artistic community, and is most recently noted for her tour de force portrayal as Terri-Jean Bedford (Madame de Sade) in WFT’s original production of Dominatrix on Trial.

She will officially take the reins January 1, 2023 after spending the rest of 2022 being mentored by outgoing Artistic Director, Patricia Fell, to whom we owe a debt of gratitude for so ably running the company for the past 16 years and bringing it national recognition.

Congratulations, Rebecca, we have every confidence in you!
