This week we’re listening to the earlier of Agnes Moorehead’s two performances of “The Yellow Wallpaper” from Suspense! Our thanks to Mark for recommending this adaptation of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story! A new mother is being kept by her husband in a room adorned with yellow wallpaper, allegedly for her health. Is her madness causing her to see things in the wallpaper’s pattern? Are the things hiding in the pattern driving her mad? Is this secretly a really disturbing episode of the Shadow? Listen for yourself and find out! Then vote and let us know what you think!

Does The Yellow Wallpaper stand the test of time?
  • It's a timeless classic. It definitely stands the test of time.
  • There may be some antiquated moments, but overall it's great. It stands the test of time.
  • It may be historically significant or just fun, but it doesn't stand the test of time.
  • It's not worth revisiting. It definitely does not stand the test of time.
