The Woman In Black - West End
Starting at £19.50
One of the most exciting, gripping and successful theatre events ever staged, The Woman In Black, is now in its nineteenth year in the West End. Unanimously acclaimed by the critics, Stephen Mallatratt's adaptation of Susan Hill's best selling novel combines the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir.
A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul.
It all begins innocently enough, but then, as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.
The borders between make believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins to creep ...
Running Time: One hour and 50 minutes
Tuesdays: 3:00pm and 8:00pm
Thursdays: 3:00pm and 8:00pm
Saturdays: 4:00pm and 8:00pm

Last week I was delighted to receive a good luck card from the splendid and venerable actor John Nettleton. 'There, my blessings on thee,' it said. He reminded me that he had last said those words to me as Polonius (I played Laertes, his son) in Hamlet at the Old Vic Theatre nearly 40 years ago.

Stephen Mallatratt's ghoulish adaptation of Susan Hill's infamous ghost story has been frightening London audiences for over twenty-five years and embarked on a UK tour in September. Whilst on its travels the classic play has taken up residence for a spell of haunting at Exeter's Northcott Theatre this week, allowing Devon audiences the opportunity to see the hit show within their locale. Unlike some of the West End's other long running stage offerings, it's easy to see why The Woman in Black has enjoyed such longevity, as the timeless tale remains an utterly thrilling theatrical white-knuckle ride.
