Having been a mainstay in the West End for over 30 years, ​The Woman in Black ​has thrilled over seven million people and proved to be one of the most gripping and successful theatre events ever to grace the stage.

The Woman in Black​ is the story of Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, who is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, the sole inhabitant of Eel Marsh House, a place full of secrets that lie behind the dark shuttered windows.

At the funeral he catches a glimpse of a young woman, dressed all in black. Feelings of unease ensue, something that is heightened by the local peoples' reluctance to talk about ​The Woman in Black​ and her purpose.

Arthur Kipps, now an old man, tells a young actor of his experiences in an attempt to exorcise the ghosts of the past. The play unfolds around the conversations between the two gentlemen as they act out the solicitor’s experiences on Eel Marsh.

"The most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter", according to the Daily Telegraph. Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story is brought to dramatic life in Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation.
