The Woman in Black | London

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.

The borders between make believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins to creep ...

About The Woman In Black

Based on the successful Gothic-themed novel by the eminent English author Susan Hill, The Woman in Black is a chilling account of a troubled retired solicitor, Arthur Kipps. After having heard an exchange of ghost stories from his family, he suddenly withdraws from the room to write about the horrors he witnessed years ago.

The play was adapted and pioneered by the renowned playwright Stephen Mallatratt, who also worked as a producer for ITV's Coronation Street but, following a battle with leukaemia, sadly passed away in 2004.

Over the years, The Woman in Black review write-ups have been received from many prestigious publications, described as 'a masterpiece' by The Guardian and 'a real thrill of horror' by the Sunday Times.

The Woman In Black cast and theatre

The Woman in Black cast includes Stuart Fox as Mr Kipps and Joseph Chance as The Actor.

The Woman in Black London play is held at the Fortune Theatre on Russell Street, which, despite being one of the smallest in the West End, offers a more intimate atmosphere than many other theatres, and is housed in a Grade II listed building. The theatre opened in the 1920s, when it was known as the Fortune Thriller Theatre, and held performances by the wartime organisation the Entertainments National Service Association, which provided theatre entertainment for military personnel.
