About the Play

The second-longest running play on the West End and in 2012 made into a film, “The Woman in Black” is the ultimate thriller/ghost story perfectly suited to a small, intimate theatre.  A middle-aged lawyer hires a younger actor to tutor him in recounting to family and friends a tale that has long haunted him.  Several years earlier the lawyer visited the house of a dead elderly recluse and there caught sight of the Woman in Black – a spectre which terrifies the local population and about whom it is said that anyone who sees her suffers tragedy.  As the two men rehearse the lawyer’s story it comes alive, in all its terrifying aspects.
