Slipstream Theater Initiative Presents UNDER THE YELLOW SIGN as Part of PENNY DREADFUL SeriesSlipstream Theater Initiative Presents UNDER THE YELLOW SIGN as Part of PENNY DREADFUL Series
by BWW News Desk - Oct 13, 2016

It is said, there is a play that once you've read or seen, will leave your mind grasping for reality again…For one weekend only, Slipstream is thrilled to release its annual Penny Dreadful Halloween experience! Join us as we explore themes of madness, art and terror in Penny Dreadful 2016: Under the Yellow Sign.  Weaving together 3 narratives adapted from The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, The King in Yellow by Robert W.

All under the Yellow Sign of an ancient evil… (more...)

by Andrew White - Sep 12, 2016

One of the show's most fascinating aspects is the choreography of McNamara's movements; Red Peter tends to morph into the Variety Show act he was trained to perform, shuffling from side to side and raising his hat and cane as if for applause. But the divorce between the 'performer' and his soul is painfully obvious, and the sense of self-alienation is made all the more poignant in moments when Peter retreats upstage to cradle his head and rock himself sane, before reaching once again for his half-pint bottle of Schnapps.
