About The Woman in Black

Having been a mainstay in the West End for over 30 years, ​The Woman in Black ​has thrilled over 7 million people and proved to be one of the most gripping and successful theatre events ever to grace the stage.

The Woman in Black​ is the story of Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, who is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, the sole inhabitant of Eel Marsh House, a house full of secrets that lie behind the dark shuttered windows. At the funeral he catches a glimpse of a young woman, dressed all in black. Feelings of unease ensue, something that is heightened by the local populations reluctance to talk about ​The Woman in Black​ and her purpose.

Arthur Kipps, now an old man, tells a young actor of his experiences in an attempt to exorcise the ghosts of the past. The play unfolds around the conversations between the two gentlemen as they act out the solicitor’s experiences on Eel Marsh.

Check out the longest-running plays in London, including The Woman in Black

Based on Susan Hill’s ghost novel of the same name, The Woman in Black is a play that’s stood the test of time. After 30 years, The Woman in Black in London continues at the Fortune Theatre, inviting audiences into one of the spookiest plays of all time.

What to Watch For

  • The Woman in Black famously uses the audience’s imagination to create the sets. Horses and carts, props and even pets are imagined.
  • The ‘play within a play’ element featured in The Woman In Black was not originally a part of Susan Hill’s book, on which the show is based. The Woman in Black play is by Stephen Mallatratt.
  • The Woman In Black is the second longest running play in London, behind The Mousetrap. The Woman in Black began performances at the Fortune Theatre in 1989.
