About the show
Prepare to be terrified as you watch the spine-chilling tale of The Woman in Black, one of the scariest shows in the West End.
Showing in London theatres for more than 25 years, The Woman in Black is a terrifying adaption of Susan Hill’s ghost story of the same name and tickets are still in high demand.
In this intimate performance adapted by Stephen Mallatratt, only two actors perform on stage. The show opens in an empty London theatre where Arthur Kipps is reading a manuscript of his story. A story that sees the young Arthur, a junior solicitor, attend the funeral of an elderly client to discover a shadowy disfigured woman standing in the churchyard.
When no one will talk to him about the woman in black he witnessed, Arthur decides to investigate her story and uncovers a terrible secret.
One of London’s longest running shows, The Woman in Black reduces audiences to terror, employing spooky settings and lighting effects to recreate abandoned nurseries, age-old tragedies and – in one of the play’s most iconic scenes – an empty rocking chair.
Richard Hope plays Arthur Kipps while Mark Hawkins plays The Actor.
The Guardian have called The Woman In Black, “One of British theatre’s biggest – and scariest – hits”, while The Sunday Mirror warn, “Don’t go unless you like being scared out of your wits!” and Time Out say, “The chills are irresistibly effective… a delicious spell of malevolence and menace”.
