The Woman In Black

Fortune Theatre, London


More information about The Woman In Black tickets


    Susan Hill's acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically alive in Stephen Mallatratt's ingenious stage adaptation - "The most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter" (Daily Telegraph).

    Now celebrating three decades in the West End, Robin Herford's gripping production is a brilliantly successful study in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror. "One of British theatre's biggest - and scariest - hits" (The Guardian).

    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.

What people are saying about The Woman In Black

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun, true to the book and thrilling After reading the book I went to see the play to solidify my understanding of the story. It was instantly worth it when I saw how the theatre production adapted the play to still fix the story. There were also a few jump scares and the ocassional loud noises which really emphasised the significance of the Woman in Black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really enjoyed this! We took our 14 year old grandson to see this and because of mixed reviews on here I was a bit apprehensive, but I needn’t have worried. After the first 5 minutes it was easy to understand the concept of the actors swapping rôles and to get used to the minimum props. and appreciate their skill in using these to paint a clear picture of the scenes before us. It was a joy to have to use our imaginations, whilst listening to a gripping and intriguing story. The play is creepy and scary enough to satisfy the expectations, helped along by excellent sound effects and clever use of background scenes to expand the stage and heighten the suspense.The two actors were excellent, although at times the conversation was a little difficult to hear from the Upper Circle. We all really enjoyed it and if you like a play that makes you think, entertains with a good story, well told and which makes you jump then go and see The Woman in Black! Our grandson didn’t stop talking about it all the way home and to get that reaction from a teenager is quite an achievement! The staff at this small theatre are very pleasant and helpful and the tickets arrived without any hassle. An excellent experience all round.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good show in intimate theatre Considering there were only two actors (plus a ghost!) the show was well thought out and was a story within a story. A clever production with simple, but effective, use of the limited scenery.
