The-Woman-in-Black-Photo-credit-Craig-Sugden-WebWhat do you get when you add three actors (one of which is a ghostly, mute presence) + an empty stage + few props and sound effects + clever staging and a vivd imagination all situated in a haunted theatre in Central London? A brilliant and equally scary play ideal for the Halloween weekend.

Long before Daniel Radcliffe took on the role of young Arthur Kipps to the big screen; Susan Hill’s 1983 horror novel has been spooking, haunting and scaring theatre goers for over 20 years.

The Woman In Black tells the story of a now elderly Arthur Kipps who with the help of a young actor recants the sinister events that befell at Eel Marsh House and the ghost of Mrs Drablow.

Filled with suspense that has you on the edge of your seat. In a digital age where teenagers have the attention span of a goldfish The Woman In Black manages to draw the viewer in with its simple but smart execution.
