Written by Stephen Mallatratt based on the best-selling novel by Susan Hill, The Woman In Black is directed by Robin Herford.
“The most brilliantly effective spine chiller you will ever encounter…if you haven’t seen this show yet you are missing a treat” Daily Telegraph
Eel Marsh House stands alone on the windswept salt marshes by the Nine Lives Causeway. When Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, the house’s sole inhabitant, he is unaware of the tragic secrets which lie hidden behind the shuttered windows of the house. That is until he sees a wasted young woman dressed all in black at the funeral, and a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold of him… an unease that deepens by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black. Years later, as an old man, he recounts his experiences to an actor in a desperate attempt to exorcise the ghosts of the past. The play unfolds around the conversations of these two characters as they act out the solicitor’s experiences on Eel Marsh all those years ago.
The Woman in Black originally opened at the Strand Theatre (now the Novello Theatre) on 15 February 1989, and then moved to its current home at the Fortune Theatre on 7 June 1989.
