The Woman in Black is one of the most exciting (and terrifying!) theatre plays ever staged, combining the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir.
It tells the story of a man who is obsessed with a family curse. So terrified is he, that he engages the help of a sceptical young actor to help him exorcise the fear that is gripping his soul.
But as he begins to tell the actor his story, reaching further and further back into his deepest and darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in an eerie world of marshes and moaning winds, and the border between reality and his imagination begins to blur...
