‘The Woman in Black’
On Thursday 12 November Drama students from Fourth and Fifth Year and Lower Sixth travelled to the Fortune Theatre in London to see a matinee performance of ‘The Woman in Black’. Based on Susan Hill’s ghost story, the play by Stephen Mallatratt had girls jumping, gasping and shrieking as the horrible tale of the Woman in Black revealed itself. As well as being slightly scared, the girls were very impressed by the performance, which features only two actors (plus the Woman in Black) but which nevertheless had them hooked from start to finish. The girls were very grateful to Mr Carroll and Miss McCann for taking them on this trip- even if some of them had a little difficulty getting to sleep later that night!
