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).

Such incredible acting, spine chilling and a lot funnier then I expected! The only thing that would’ve made it better is if the audience wasn’t there 😂

My second time seeing this play and still so very scary. Incredible achievement to make this book work on stage and still be as frightening and full of suspense as the novel. Not to be missed. Unsurprising that it has been running for 30 years...

Seen this 4 times now and I think that it is brilliantly acted every time. You wouldn’t think it’s been going everyday for years. Still made me jump!

I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy it when it first started but it was so good, both actor (and the Lady in Black) were brilliant.
