The Woman in Black

On Monday 30th September Year 10 and 11 Drama students were given the opportunity to watch a live performance of ‘The Woman in Black’ at the Royal and Derngate Theatre in Northampton.

It was a spine-chilling adventure, as it told the story of a lawyer who was obsessed with a curse put upon his family and haunted by the ghost of the Woman in Black.

Both year groups had a wonderful time at the theatre. Year 11 will review the play in depth as we will be studying it for our GCSE exams. Year 10 will also study the play and use this experience as an example of what to expect when they sit their final exams.

I thought it was an exciting experience as it was an opportunity to watch and gain insight into a professional production and to develop my understanding of professional staging; including setting, lighting, costumes and sound.
