The West End’s second longest-running play after Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap, The Woman in Black is set to open at Cambridge Arts Theatre on Thursday 17 June before embarking on a tour across the country at venues including: Bath, Guilford, Oxford, Malvern, Shrewsbury, Manchester, Brighton, Glasgow, York, Blackpool, Stoke and Edinburgh.
Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best-selling novel tells the story of a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over his family by the spectre of a ‘Woman in Black’’. He engages a young actor to help him tell his story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It begins innocently enough, but as they delve further into his darkest memories the borders between make-believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins to creep.
In June 2019 the show celebrated its 30 anniversary in London’s West End with a special gala performance. The show is directed by Robin Herford, with designs by Michael Holt and lighting by Kevin Sleep.
