About The Woman in Black

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 skeptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story...

Millions of theatre goers worldwide have experienced “the most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter” (Daily Telegraph).

Continuing its record breaking run in London’s West End, The Woman in Black now embarks on a major UK Tour. 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.
