The Woman In Black

Dame Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically alive in Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation.

Starring Richard Hope as ‘Arthur Kipps’ and Mark Hawkins as ‘The Actor’

The Woman In Black is a gripping theatrical exploration of terror, 'a masterpiece' (The Guardian) that's been thrilling audiences of all ages with its unique blend of suspense, drama and bold stagecraft. Now celebrating 27 terrifying years in the West End, Robin Herford’s gripping production is a brilliantly successful study in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror.

A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It all begins innocently enough, but then, as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.

Feel the power of the Woman In Black for yourself and experience the 'most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter' (The Daily Telegraph).

    Really Great plot and cast. I was on the edge of my seat for much of the show.

  • An ingenious take on a fantastic book

    11 September 2022

    I had a really great time. The woman in black is one of my favourite books and I think the playwright has found a very clever way to adapt it for the stage. The actors were great and the play manages to be both funny and scary. SPOILER ALERT My only complaint is that the woman in black's face should have stayed under a veil as the make-up or mask was a little ridiculous to my taste: the less you show, the scarier it is...
