Off to the theatre: The Woman in Black

I love the theatre but I rarely get to go anymore. I used to make sure I went to see the Phantom of the Opera (my favourite) every year but it has been a while.

For Christmas this year, my boyfriend bought me tickets to the Woman in Black and considering my reaction to the film version, it was bound to be interesting.

The stage. Look how close we were.

I am one of those people who still insists on dressing up for the theatre, you might as well considering it's still a pretty exciting occasion. For this I chose to go for a pretty colour combination of white and mint with silver accessories. My shoes are Jeffrey Campbell and the necklace is from my flatmate. The top and trousers are both from Monki.

Strike an awkward pose...

I am the world's biggest wuss. I admit it. I insist on watching horror movies and reading horror novels but I still end up having to sleep with the light on or watching a Disney movie straight afterwards to make myself feel better about life.

Despite this, the boyfriend thought it would be absolutely hilarious to get me an aisle seat in practically the front row. I was not impressed. Especially since the woman in black decided to appear right at my elbow and I ended up burying myself in his shoulder.

All in all the show was excellent even though I did spend most of it hiding away and pretending it wasn't happening. The minimalist stage and only three actors made the whole thing captivating and all the more terrifying and I was glad that I wasn't the only person in the audience screaming in terror!

If you think you can handle it, I strongly suggest you go. I won't be going again.


  1. I went to see it when I was 15 and you could not pay me to see it again haha! Terrifying.
