The Woman In BlackOpening in the West End in 1989, The Woman In Black is now in its twenty fifth year in the West End!

The Woman In Black is one of the most captivating, absorbing and intriguing theatrical performances events.

Extensively praised by the critics, Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best-selling novel combines the dramatic effect of live theatre with a cinematic quality embraced by the world of film noir.

A lawyer haunted 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 chilling story and finally rid him of the fear that grips his soul.

It all begins innocently enough, but , as they delve deeper into his darkest memories, they find themselves in a land full of eery marshes and howling winds.

The border between fantasy and reality begins to diminish and the flesh begins to creep…

Please note that there is a possibility of groups of older teenage school children attending performances of The Woman In Black, particularly for Monday to Thursday performances, as the play is part of the National Curriculum.
