About The Woman in Black
  • 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.
