First performed in 1987 at Theatre-By-The-Sea in Scarborough, this play made its way to the West End in 1989 and became the second-longest-running show. The current cast of this horror play will see Terrence Wilton reprising his role as Arthur Kipps and Max Hitchingson playing the Actor.It is one of the scariest live theatre experiences that you will ever see!
In The Woman in Black, you will follow the story of a solicitor named Arthur Kipps who travels to Eel Marsh House to attend the funeral of its sole inhabitant, Mrs. Alice Drablow. Unaware of the dark secrets surrounding this house, he catches a glimpse of a young woman, dressed in black, at the funeral. When he inquires about her, he starts feeling a little uneasy as everyone is scared to discuss this woman in black.
As he returns, his life becomes haunted and misfortunes befall him. In an attempt to drive it away, he takes the help of an actor years later to tell his story to others.
