The Woman in Black | MON 03 – SAT 08 FEB

Post Show Q&A | Tuesday Matinee

Workshops

English KS4 &5 – Discuss the evolution of ghosts within literature before analysing Susan Hill’s and Stephen Mallatratt’s portrayal. For KS5, we’ll explore features of the gothic and how this presents a challenge to a contemporary reader/audience while exploring the changes made to the text while adapting it for the stage and create your own short scripts based on the real ghosts of the Kings Theatre.

Drama KS4&5  – This session will prepare your students to evaluate the live performance. At KS5, we will explore the dynamic choices made by the director of ‘The Woman in Black’ before using devised and ensemble theatre work to create some of the most iconic moments from the text.

Science/Design Technology KS4 –  In this dynamic and practical workshop, pupils will learn about the creation of the ‘Pepper’s Ghost’ illusion before being guided to make their own using mirrors and craft materials. 

History KS4 – Investigate the social historical context of the text and how different gender roles from the period contribute to our understanding of the text.

PSHE/Citizenship KS4 – Debate whether the curse is real or a hoax using replica artefacts and extracts from the text, pupils will examine the causes of the tragedy as well as how it could have been prevented.

Tour

The Edwardian Kings Theatre is the ideal venue for the terrifying ‘Woman in Black’. On our tour you’ll learn all about the social history of the theatre, as well as a few of our own ghosts, making it the perfect setting for this performance.
