The Woman in Black theatre break

Fortune Theatre

from £52.00pp Price per person for hotel room and theatre ticket.

This dark eerie play combines the intensity of live theatre with cinematic drama from the world of film noir. Full of surprise and suspense this is the most spine tingling ghost story ever told on stage. A tale of a junior solicitor who is sent to wind up the affairs of a recently deceased woman in a mysterious old house. He encounters a mysterious white faced young woman dressed in black. Locals refused to acknowledge her existence, but slowly she reveals her terrible purpose. Exciting and gripping this play follows in the footsteps of all classic ghost stories and culminates in a horrifying climax.

Review by Gabriella Fairs

The Woman in Black Theatre Break with Crowne Plaza Shoreditch, Sep 2011

The website was nice and easy to use very clear, could have perhaps included how to get from theatre to hotel and vice versa by public transort, although all the other information was clear and good. Picking up the tickets was very quick and easy and the seats were fantastic in the dress circle right near the front and middle so we saw everything very clearly. The play was also very good the actors were excellent. The hotel was very easy to check in and out of the staff were helpful too. The room was absolutely lovely it was a double room as asked which hasnt been the cas with other places i have booked from. The room was also very spacious and clean, very stylishly designed and the bed was very comfortable with two pillows each. The room was a very nice temperature. It was probably one of the nicest hotel stays iv had and i found the whole experience very good with little hassle, i have already recommended you to other people and would definately book again through you, thank you very much. :)

The Woman in Black Theatre Break with Gresham Hotel, Jun 2011

The hotel altered our booking on our arrival fro twin bedded to two single bedded rooms which suited y daughter and I. The hotel was excellent - good breakfast for £5 p.p. en suite rooms all we needed, a somewhat tempermental lift but that wasn't a real problem. Good location too, not too far from the tube or buses. Friendly helpful staff. Would definitely go there again. We had excellent theatre seats, superb performances fron the actors, the show had been hyped as full of frights etc, we found the 'frights' a little predictalr, but it didn't spoil our enjoyment one bit a brilliant break!!
