  • The Woman in Black at the Fortune Theatre, London

    The Woman in Black

    Stephen Mallatratt’s effectively simple stage adaptation of Susan Hill’s classic ghost story is famed for using just two actors to create the eerie atmosphere. The show tells the story of a young solicitor, Arthur Kipps, who is sent to set the affairs of recently deceased Alice Drablow in order but ends up uncovering the terrible secret of the "woman in black."

    Booking from 22 Jun 2017 to 03 Mar 2018

Overview

The Fortune Theatre was the first theatre to be built in London after World War I, and is situated close to the Theatre Royal Drury Lane. This intimate theatre has been host to spooky thriller The Woman in Black since 1989, which is the West End’s second longest running play after The Mousetrap. The Fortune is said to be haunted, with actors commenting on ghostly spirits.

With a seating capacity of 432, the theatre is one of the smallest in the West End. Split across three sections and with a particularly high stage, views are mixed throughout the auditorium. There is no rake in the Stalls section, which can feel quite cramped.
