The Woman in Black Excursion

The Woman in Black Excursion

Last week, as part of the SAC Arts Week the Year 12 Drama students had a week full of theatre. Firstly the put on their own production of The Lord of the Flies and then were lucky enough to see the stage adaption of the book and film The Woman In Black. 

Britain’s second longest running play after The Mousetrap, The Woman in Black tells the story of a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black. Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically alive in Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation. This gripping production is a brilliantly successful study in simplicity, atmosphere, illusion and horror. 

“One of British theatre’s biggest – and scariest – hits” (The Guardian).
