The Woman In Black

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.

What is The Woman In Black about?

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.
Standing strong as the West End’s second longest-running show, and haunting seven million theatre-goers to date, 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).

  • Pleasently surprised

    I brought tickets to take my daughter to see Woman in Black, as they are studying the play as part of their GCSE’s. I was not expecting that much to be honest and was actually not looking forward to seeing the play. How wrong could I have been. It was brilliantly thought out, and had you listening intently throughout. I did not want it to end. The atmosphere / setting and the excellent acting all added to the overall feel and aesthetics, making you believe in the story even more. I would definitely say it’s not for the feint of heart, there are a few well timed scares, (not going to ruin it) Afterwards both my daughter and I were saying about sleeping with a light on when we got home. Well done.

    A lovely old theatre, quite small, but full of character. An amazing performance with only 2 actors who managed to create a very tense atmosphere with lights, sound effects and dialogue. Very clever.. Had a lovely time, only let down by the exorbitant price of drinks - £10..!!
