Horror play a first on State Theater stage
“The Woman in Black,” a 1987 stage play based on the book of the same name, which was published in 1983 by English author Susan Hill, is now being staged by the Ankara State Theater in Ankara’s Akün Stage.
At the heart of the story is the suffering of a woman, who has to give up her child because of social pressure. The woman's ghostly appearance after her and her child’s death increases the graphic of stress.
Turan summarized the play as "a painful, emotional and a tragic ghost story filled with fear elements." He emphasized that such a story with horror and tension elements was on the stage at the DT for the first time.
Turan pointed out that it was much more difficult to create elements of fear and tension in the theater than the cinema, saying, “In unexpected time we have effects and snapshots according to the story's flow. Especially after the end of the first act, the game has an increasing graphic; the second act is becoming more and more different.”
