Una forma d’orrore specificamente teatrale : The woman in black
Pasqualicchio, Nicola (Università degli studi di Verona)

Additional title: A specifically theatrical kind of horror : The woman in black
Date: 2018
Abstract: L’articolo esamina il dramma The Woman in Black di Stephen Mallatratt (1987), mettendolo a confronto con il romanzo omonimo di Susan Hill (1983) da cui deriva. L’articolo analizza i procedimenti specificamente teatrali di realizzazione dell’orrore, che fanno del dramma un’opera più originale della tradizionale ghost story che ne è all’origine. In particolare viene sottolineata la ritrovata continuità tra performance teatrale e azione rituale, che espone la scena all’irruzione del soprannaturale.
Abstract: The article focuses on Stephen Mallatratt’s play The Woman in Black (1987) and confronts it with the homonymous novel by Susan Hill (1983), that is its source. The goal of the article is to emphasize the originality of the play in comparison with the literary work, and to demonstrate how it employs specifically theatrical devices to achieve its horror effects. In particular, the article underlines the continuity between theatrical performance and rite, that opens the stage door to the irruption of the supernatural.
