This was a new presentation from Lucy Adlington showcasing sinister women and the enduring lure of black in fashion.
It had beautiful costumes and darkly dramatic readings from the best of British ‘gothic’ writing, including Jane Austen, Emily Brontë, Mary Shelley, Mrs Radcliffe, Charles Dickens and Horace Walpole… and coming right up to date with The Woman in Black.

We are big fans of Lucy and have also been to see ‘VOTES FOR WOMEN’ and ‘WOMEN & THE GREAT WAR’
