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).

    A very unusual play. After seeing the films i wasn't sure what to expect, maybe i was expecting in the play similar to the film. Was not expecting it to be just two actors acting out various characters with sound effects and props and a couple of glimpses of a woman in black. Though they were very good i think it was confusing probably for the younger members.
