The Woman in Black: legendary horror adapted by Stephen Mallatratt
The second longest running play in the history of the West End, spooky production The Woman in Black has been terrifying audiences at London's Fortune Theatre since 1989. Based on Susan Hill's popular novel, Stephen Mallatratt's incredible stage adaptation brings the suspense-filled horror story to life; taking the audience on a journey through a single night in which the ghosts of the past come back to haunt a sceptical lawyer.
A gripping production unfolds as the main character delves into the depths of his memory to try and rid himself of the spectre's curse. Buy The Woman in Black tickets now at StubHub UK and enjoy a fright night of theatre.
The Woman in Black: West End's spookiest show continues its incredible run
Set backstage at a theatre, The Woman in Black follows junior solicitor Arthur Kipps as he journeys to the small market town of Crythin Gifford to attend the funeral of a client, Mrs Alice Drablow. At the funeral, he sees a young woman with a wasted face, dressed all in black, standing in the churchyard. Bemused by the villagers' reluctance to speak of the woman in black, Arthur goes to Eel Marsh House, Mrs. Drablow's former abode, an old building in the middle of a marsh, which is cut off from the mainland at high tide. Sorting through Mrs Drablow's papers, he finds a box of letters, and ultimately discovers the dreadful secret of the Woman in Black – to his own terrible cost.
Critics have hailed the production as one of 'British theatre's biggest – and scariest – hits', and it's the perfect study in controlled horror. Currently playing at the Fortune Theatre, just two actors take on this mammoth production under the direction of Robin Herford. With a new cast, it's equal parts nerve-shredding and chilling, with a sense of unease interrupted by some truly shocking moments. Grab The Woman in Black tickets now at StubHub UK and prepare to be spooked.
