WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Was madness a means of liberation for female writers throughout history? Barefaced Theatre explores the presumed madness of the women that created some of literature's greatest works, allowing them the freedom to write as they wished, and paving the way for today's women writers. Mad Women in Attics examines Mary Shelley, whose sensational personal life and loss of three children found release in her novel Frankenstein; Emily Dickinson, the 19th century American whose poems reached far beyond the confines of her reclusive life; the utopian feminist Charlotte Perkins Gilman, plagued by depression, whose story The Yellow Wallpaper highlighted the horrors of confinement for women termed 'mad'; and Virginia Woolf, the modernist genius whose own demons would eventually consume her.
