The Woman in Black

Yesterday evening Shannon and I went and saw The Woman In Black at the Fortune Theatre in London. This is pretty much the first non-musical theatre production that we’ve seen since we moved back to the UK.

I think we were both suprised both by the standard of the performance, and the fact that it was actually scary. The build up of tension, and the trick of people leaping out of the darkness suddenly, that works so well for movies like Halloween also works wonderfully well for this show set in the 20s (ish).

It didn’t hurt that we had two rows of 15 year olds behind us, and the girls screamed at pretty much anything. Still, very much worth seeing, and with only 2 performers and the most basic of stage design it leaves a lot to the imagination (which is good).
