A chilling theatrical ghost storyWatch out for things that go bump in the night; Susan Hill’s classic story The Woman in Black continues to spook audiences at the Fortune Theatre.
The unsettling tale follows young 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.
Famously using just two actors to bring the story to life, The Woman in Black is one of London’s longest-running plays. Susan Hill’s novel has more recently been adapted for film, starring Daniel Radcliffe, but this theatrical version remains unmatched for frights and shocks.
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…
