The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins

Presented by The Online Stage

Walter Hartright, a struggling art teacher, is stopped for directions while traveling on a dark road by a mysterious woman in white. Thus begins Walter's deep dive into the twists and turns of stolen identities, fraud, spies, conspiracy and death. Along the way, he meets the lovely Laura Fairlie and her emboldened half-sister, Marian Halcombe. Marian is brazen and assertive in her search for the truth, a strong female during a time when women were simply viewed as the weaker sex. She joins Walter on his journey to untangle the web of lies and deceit that has been spun so expertly around his new found friends. 

The Woman in White is often touted as being the first Victorian crime novel.

Picture perfect dramatised production.

This dramatised version painted this marvellous (and in my mind, timeless) story with hues that were hitherto unknown to me. Having read it eons ago, I was delighted to rediscover my favorite characters in new light and voice! It took me, once again, on a remarkable journey with Walter, Marian, and Laura. How interesting they sounded! How wistful their pursuits! And what pleasure it brought me. Reading has its merits, but in these times of collective suffering, this dramatised version gives a comforting sense of escapism. All the artists were increasingly successful in creating the atmosphere of the 1850s. Very grateful for this production. I am certain to return to it again and again.
