The Woman in Black Tickets

Susan Hill’s classic ghost story continues to haunt the West End, offering a spooky night out for theatre fans.

A chilling theatrical ghost story

Watch out for things that go bump in the night; Susan Hill’s classic ghost story The Woman in Black is spooking audiences at the Fortune Theatre.

The unsettling tale follows lawyer Arthur Kipps as he travels to a remote English town that harbours a horrifying curse. Tasked with putting a deceased young woman’s affairs in order, Kipps soon becomes caught up in a terrifying cat-and-mouse game, as the sinister woman in black lurks in the shadows.

The Woman in Black has been thrilling West End audiences for over 30 years, making it one of the longest-running plays in London. It famously features just two actors, with Terence Wilton (Arthur Kipps) and Max Hutchinson (The Actor) currently appearing in the show. Chris Gilling and Raymond Rose complete The Woman in Black London cast, as understudies for Arthur Kipps and The Actor respectively.

Susan Hill’s novel has more recently been adapted for film, starring Daniel Radcliffe, but The Woman in Black play remains unmatched for bringing the atmosphere of the original story to life.

Clever stagecraft and a creeping sense of unease make The Woman in Black tickets perfect for thrill-seekers and mystery fans - just be ready to hide behind your fingers…
