Katie Mccullough Talks and Writes

Words will get written here and some videoblogs will appear. You don't have to look but it would be nice if you did.

The White Room April 4, 2010

It’s coming up very soon. So here are the details if you so wish to come and see it. It would be nice to see your face there, I may even stroke it. In all seriousness there’s a Q&A with myself, the director and the two actors involved after the final evening performance on the Sunday.

There’s a Facebook event page as well like most modern things have so if you want you can have a looksy there: (this here is a link to the Facebook event page I just mentioned)


But if that doesn’t take you fancy here are the details in a wordy format. Fantastic!


Commissioned by Theatrix Theatre Company, Katie McCullough has adapted the short story ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’. Radically modernised for a 21st century audience McCullough aims to carry through the horror first depicted by Charlotte Perkins Gilman in the original.


With Liam spending more time at work and the pressures of motherhood bearing down on Helen the couple bicker with each other to devastating and revealing results. She thinks he’s having an affair and he can’t seem to inject their life with the warmth he’s so ready to give while battling with money issues. After wading through their fears and differences the couple reconcile only for the past to be dug back up. With newborn Isabel palmed off to the mother-in-law for the night Helen talks about that fateful incident that cruelly took their previous child.
