Widely heralded by the critics, Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best selling novel combines the intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality embraced by the world of film noir.
A lawyer haunted with a curse that he thinks has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his chilling story and rid him of the fear that grips his soul.
It all begins innocently enough, but then, as they reach deeper into his darkest memories, they find themselves in a world of eery marshes and frightening winds.
The borders between fantasy and reality begin to fade and the flesh begins to creep…
Review: “If you have not taken the opportunity to see this show and maybe thought “oh I’ll just watch the film instead”, stop! The stage production portrays the characters and story in far more depth and if you are looking for the fear factor, I felt it was far scarier when it is actually happening all around you. Be warned! Throughout the show, you will hear noises, be engulfed in smoke and begin to think you have actually seen the woman in black everywhere you glance.” David Brewis
