GCSE trip to ‘The Woman in Black’
In December, the GCSE English literature students went to London to see ‘The Woman in Black’, a play well known for its spookiness. Our expectations were proved right, as we screamed at every opportunity.
The play stayed especially faithful to the book, even though, unlike the novel, it was actually set in a theatre. Because of this, the props were very basic. They consisted of things that one would find in a theatre- for example, the pony and trap was made out of an old wooden trunk. Despite this, the actors succeeded in making the action as realistic as possible.
The much anticipated Woman in Black produced multiple screams from the audience. The twist ending was completely unexpected, and left us thinking long after we left the theatre. The play was very enjoyable, but if you like blood and gore, I wouldn’t recommend it
