“The Walls” contains strong language and adult themes, which may not be suitable for children.
In this haunting and emotional piece, Carrie is a young woman researching the history of the treatment of mental illness in women, seeking answers to conditions she fears will soon manifest in herself. As she delves deeper into the lives of her subjects – a mother with major depressive disorder from the 1920’s and a woman suffering from anxiety in the 1880’s – Carrie loses herself in her obsession. But a newly kindled friendship with the enigmatic Lucy forces her to confront her own ghosts and offers hope for a new life among the living.
Cast members include Alaina Counts, Heather Bryant, Adrianna Quiñones, Colleen Underwood, Timothy Sherman, Allison Dilbone, Ella Stickradt, Cameron Lightfoot and Dan Ross.
“The Walls” is directed by Christopher Matsos, Ph.D., assistant professor of theatre.
