The Winton Players are performing The Woman In White at Petersfield Festival Hall from October 12 to 14.

The Woman In White is regarded as Wilkie Collins’ best novel, and this adaptation by Constance Cox is a tale of intrigue, romance and villainy – a thrillingly entertaining mix.

The story begins with Walter Hartright’s unexpected encounter with a desperate woman dressed entirely in white.

When he subsequently gains a post as drawing master at Limmeridge Hall in Cumberland, his chance encounter takes on a mysterious significance as he is drawn into a world of hidden secrets, dastardly actions and shadowy characters, among them the brutish Sir Percival Glyde and the devilish Count Fosco.

Walter’s apparently hopeless love for Laura Fairlie, and his regard for her half-sister Marion Halcombe, combined with Fosco’s greed and Glyde’s secret, lead to an electrifyingly dramatic climax.

A spokesperson said: “Winton Players would like to thank Langrish House for accommodating our photo shoot, It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon and a wonderful location. We would also like to thank St Peter’s Church for the use of their photographs.”  

Shows are at 7.30pm each night and 2.30pm on October 14. Tickets £14 or £12 (under-18s £9 or £7) at
