The Woman in Black Tickets

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…

The show was fab. You have to question front of house though. After brilliantly announcing turn phones off as both their light and their noise greatly disturb the cast and other audience members (I wish more theatres did this). They then let in late comers, take them to the worng seats, have a debate and then make a whole row stand up and move two seats along. This had all to be re-sorted at the interval. Huge disturbance. Latecomers should wait until the interval - they won't be late agian.

Saw this (and the film) a long time ago - long enough to have forgotten the juicy bits. Wanted to see it again before it closes. The stage show starts slowly (keep with it) but develops into a masterpiece of story telling. Simple but very clever set and exceptional use of lighting. I completely understand why it has lasted in the West End for so long.

Chilling, Haunting. I was literally frozen to my seat by the end! I knew it would be scary but it’s not what I was expecting! I wont give too much away because you have to experience it to get the full picture. However, if you don’t like children being involved in scary stories then i wouldn’t suggest it for you. They also do not use microphones so if you struggle with hearing I would suggest sitting nearer the front - although the theatre is very small! I was blown away by the show! Especially considering there are only two actors!!
