Why See The Woman in Black?
A gothic ghost story
For the better part of three decades, Stephen Mallatratt's masterful adaptation of Susan Hill's terrifying tale has been thrilling audiences in London's West End, raising pulses and eliciting shrieks at every performance. Now, the show embarks on a new US tour, where you'll be able to experience the nightmare for yourself. You have been warned.
The story of Arthur Kipps, a young clerk sent to settle the estate of the late Alice Drablow and the horrors he encounters at her isolated home, Eel Marsh House, The Woman in Black is a true theatrical phenomenon, running uninterrupted in London for 28 years. Mallatratt and director Robin Herford have ingeniously turned Hill's novel into a two man show, played out on a sparsely decorated set, employing every tension ratcheting sound and light effect in the book. If that wasn't enough, the action isn't confined to the stage, meaning that the story of Kipps and the mysterious phantom that haunts him can occur anywhere in the auditorium - maybe right next to your seat!
A surefire Halloween highlight, fans of hair-raising horror and things that go bump in the night will love this creepy spine-chiller.

Massenet writes gloriously for the female voice, coddling it on an orchestral feather-bed; he has an innate theatrical sense
This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.
