The Woman in Black
About The Woman in Black
The US premiere of the London production of Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story, THE WOMAN IN BLACK, one of the most successful shows ever staged in the West End.
Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation is now entering its 30th terrifying year in London. Robin Herford’s gripping production is a brilliantly successful study in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror.
A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the specter of a Woman in Black, engages a skeptical 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.
Recommended for ages 17 and up.
