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…

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!!

I really enjoyed watching The Woman In Black at the Fortune Theatre and I would definitely recommend watching this play. The set designs as well as the cast, were minimalistic but nevertheless powerful. The cast was small and the two main characters had very long speeches to cover and they executed them perfectly and effortlessly. There were some slightly scary scenes so I wouldn’t really recommend this to younger children.

As above check no school parties have been booked in. Totally avoid matinees as put to 5 parties of school children are booked in. The theatre staff do nothing to ask the children to be quiet & respect the actors

I wasn’t sure how the story (I’ve seen the Daniel Radcliffe film several times) would transpose to the stage with only two actors. I was pleasantly surprised. You will laugh, gasp and possibly jump out of your seat at several points throughout the show.

Excellent performance and engaging performance from the two principle actors plus some good jump scares from the woman in black. If you've seen the movie, it's still well worth going to see this show, a very different and brilliant experience.

Excellent show. I'm more of a musical lover but this play kept me gripped throughout. There seemed to be a lot of school groups there when we went (I assume this is normal) but whenever there was a scary part, they'd all scream.
