The Woman In Black

We took a lovely group of students to York yesterday to watch a performance of The Woman in Black at the Grand Opera House. Their behaviour was impeccable and they thoroughly enjoyed the show.

The well-loved ghostly tale, adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from Susan Hill’s best-selling novel, was a theatrical treat. A young solicitor, Arthur Kipps (Goodale) is sent to Eel Marsh House, a creepy old mansion at the end of a causeway which is regularly cut off by the rising tide. He is tasked with sorting the affairs of the recently deceased owner.

But why are all the locals so jumpy about his assignment? And who is that woman he keeps seeing out of the corner of his eye? It's fair to say we jumped out of our seats at the Woman in Black!
