About the show

The Woman in Black has now become a West End institution, playing for over 25 years at the Fortune Theatre. Based on the Susan Hill novella of the same name, audiences from around the world continue to be amazed by this bone-chilling ghost story. On a bare stage, an old man meets an actor and asks for help in telling a ‘shocking’ tale that has to be told. After some initial scepticism the actor buys into the tale, and the story of The Woman in Black comes to life in its own unique way. The pair begin to tell the story of lawyer Arthur Kipps who is sent to the English countryside to settle the estate of Alice Drablow at Eel Marsh House. Hoping for a peaceful few nights, Kipps ignores the strange tales of the villagers about the house and refuses to believe in the ghostly presence that surrounds it.

The play has recently been turned into a blockbuster film starring Daniel Radcliffe. The play remains simple in its delivery but is equally as effective. Those who have seen the film will enjoy seeing the story come to light in a different way. With just two actors playing a wide variety of characters, this really is a lesson on stagecraft, and provides a unique experience for audience members who enjoy being scared…

Who Should See It?

The Woman in Black is suitable for those who enjoy being scared. The official age recommendation is 8 years plus, although we would recommend 10+ and advise parents to use their discretion when bringing children, as there are some scary moments. This is mainly all ‘bumps and bangs’ rather than anything gruesome, as the play relies on an atmosphere throughout to shock the audience.
