The Woman In Black is one of the West End’s longest-running plays, The Woman in Black has been terrifying audiences in London since 1989.
Based on Susan Hill’s novel of the same name, The Woman in Black tells the story of Arthur Kipps, a solicitor who is sent to the remote town of Crythin Gifford to attend the funeral of a client, during which he sees a mysterious woman dressed in black. He is tasked with sorting his client’s papers, and so visits Eel Marsh House where she used to live. In the play, Kips enlists the assistance of an actor to help tell the unsettling things he witnessed.
Hill’s novel has become a staple piece of literature on many school curricula, with many classes experiencing the play to aid their studies. Despite the success of the book and the films, there is no substitution for seeing the spine-tingling horrors of The Woman in Black live, on-stage.
