...a brilliantly successful study in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror
The Woman in Black

The Woman in Black

Tickets Free

Continuing its record breaking run at the Fortune Theatre in London’s West End, The Woman in Black now embarks on a major UK Tour in Spring 2017!

Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically alive in Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation. This gripping production, directed by Robin Herford, 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.

Casting for the 2016/17 tour has now been announced as David Acton – Arthur Kipps, Matthew Spencer – The Actor, Kenneth Jay – Understudy Arthur Kipps, Simon Pothercary – Understudy Actor and Audrone Koc – The Vision.
