More Information on The Woman in Black

Join the 7 million theatregoers worldwide who have experienced ‘the most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter’ (Daily Telegraph).

Continuing its record breaking run at the Fortune Theatre in London’s West End, The Woman in Black now embarks on a major UK Tour and comes to Leeds this October.

Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically to life 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.

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 sceptical 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.
