The Woman in Black 

Valley Summer Theatre delivers a well-performed, and classic, psychological thriller.

There's a delicious contrast in stepping from a sunny street in Wolfville into the darkened Al Whittle Theatre where an eerie mist billows gently from offstage. It's even more delicious to discover that sometimes a well-performed classic psychological thriller like A Woman in Black can still be scarier than blood-and-guts-spewing horror flick. The credit for the spine-tingly success must be shared among Terry Pullam and his amazingly realistic sound design, Will Perkins and his spot-on lighting design and two very fine actors---Rhys Bevan-John and Robert Seale. Bevan-John is outstanding as the young actor who recreates the ghostly happenings which previously befell the elderly solicitor played by Seale. Seale morphs easily into a multitude of memorable characters. There are some moments in this play that are guaranteed to make your heart race, and that will make emerging onto that sunny street all the more welcome.
