You could positively feel the chill of the marshes seeping into your bones in Neil Bartlett’s portrayal of this dark classic, full of foreboding and played out on a stage never fully lit. Year 8 students and staff thoroughly enjoyed the production which worked effectively as an ensemble piece. The simple, contemporary stage transported you to the marshlands of Kent, with haze rising, and small dips within the stage filled with bark, marsh like materials and shallow ponds. Once the lights went down, mechanical sounds filled the auditorium. A wonderful adaptation!
