The Walls takes a look at the effects of mental illness--and the various forms of separation it so often brings with it--on a group of women and their families in three different time periods. The play is an exploration of separation as a physical reality--the high walls of the dreaded asylums of the past--and as a multilayered metaphor--the often impenetrable walls of our own perception, the subjective walls that necessarily divide every human relationship, the walls between the sick and the well, and the lifesaving but potentially soul-deadening walls erected by psychotropic medications.

THE WALLS is presented by special arrangement with Robert A. Freedman Dramatic Agency, Inc.

$5 all ages, production may not be suitable for younger audiences.
