About the show

Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s  novel tells the story of a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over his family by the spectre of a ‘Woman in Black’.

He engages a young actor to help him tell his story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It begins innocently enough, but as they delve further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.

The show produces tense moments as the haunting tale unfolds.

The borders between make-believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins creep. The show is directed by Robin Herford, with designs by Michael Holt and lighting by Kevin Sleep.

It also celebrated its 30th anniversary in the West End with a special gala performance in June last year.

Groups who can’t make it into London can still catch one of the shows on its current UK tour, with cities such as Birmingham, Nottingham and Bath still left on the run which ends on 23rd May.
