A vibrant performance of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s classic: =The Yellow Wall-Paper.= In 1885, marriage, a well-meaning husband, and a questionable =cure= brought Gilman to her knees. Relying on blind faith, instinct, and courage, she willed herself back to health. Perhaps vital to her recovery was writing her brilliant =The Yellow Wall-Paper,= published in 1891. Transforming autobiography into fiction, she penned [pronounced editor William Dean Howells] a story =to freeze our young blood.= Gilman’s tale continues to chill readers today, dazzling feminists and historians, mystery- and horror-story enthusiasts alike, with its wit, suspense, and superlative style. Michele has performed a fully staged production of THE YELLOW WALLPAPER--adapted and directed by Warren Kliewer--in theatres from Maine to Minnesota to Virginia, for 20 years. THIS readers' theatre interpretation is designed for smaller and simpler library spaces. Michele's careful research guarantees a production faithful to its historical context. Costumed in a bustle dress of the period, Michele stretches the boundaries of oral interpretation in a performance capturing every nuance of Gilman's exquisite writing. =Your portrayal of that ingenious crazy woman is still with me.= National Portrait Gallery, DC. =LaRue is as close to perfect as possible.= Midland College, TX
