We had been exploring Gothic ghost stories in the autumn term and they seemed to really enjoy it. The darker the story the better, death and blood and gore! The […]

Those productions have limited resources, and knowing what SLT is capable of, I wanted to see what we could achieve with a more ambitious set that would enhance the action and […]
