Ever had the feeling like you’re being watched…watched intently? With a sudden rush of goosebumps covering you, head to toe? Over 7 million people have lived to tell the tale of one of the most chilling adaptations ever staged. The most gripping spine-chiller you will ever encounter in theatre. Susan Hill’s best-selling, critically acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically alive in Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation of The Woman in Black.
Need we say more?
Now celebrating its 30th year in the West End, it’s the perfect time to be scared out of your wits as you watch the story unfold in front of your very eyes. You can switch off a television or even look away for a few minutes, but in theatre your eyes cannot help but remain peeled to the stage leaving you squirming in your seat with every fright that is eagerly waiting ahead.
It tells a tale of a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family with the haunting spectre of The Woman in Black. He engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story in attempts to exorcise the very fear that grips his soul. As with all storytelling, it starts off innocently but the further the duo dive deep into the unsettling dark memories of the infamous spectre, borders between reality and the world beyond begin to blur. Before they know it, they find themselves caught up in eerie marshes, moaning winds and flesh begins to creep with an all too familiar presence…
This eerie stage spectacle combines the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir. The perfect formula for a hair raising, unsettling atmosphere into the world of the, sometimes, unseen.
Robert Goodale stars as Lawyer Arthur Kipps alongside Daniel Easton as The Actor.
The Woman in Black is directed by Robin Herford, with designs by Michael Holt and lighting by Kevin Sleep.
