A double show extravaganza. Strangest Yellow: When a Victorian-era woman is given a rigid prescription for mental health—”never touch pen, brush or pencil as long as you live”—she must decide whether to give up her writing or her marriage. Adapted from the famous short story The Yellow Wallpaper, by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Strangest Yellow questions how much has changed since then. Alaska: a place where a teenager can work a summer job as a tour guide without memorizing actual facts. Where the state motto should read: “Live Free AND Die Here. Horribly.”
