Year 9 spooked by chilling Gothic horror

Posted In Drama

For over ten years now, Rupert Mason from Redheart Theatre has chilled the bones of Year 9 pupils by performing HG Wells’s The Red Room and Poe’s The Tell-Tale Heart. With effective sound effects, lighting and superb action, he captivated and entertained the pupils and brought the two Gothic stories to life for a new generation of children.

Mason’s performance was an excellent way of beginning the Year 9 topic on Gothic Horror and the question and answer session at the end showed that the pupils gained a great deal from the production. Staff now look forward to reading the pupils’ ghost stories over the next few weeks.
