Arthur Kipps is summoned to Crythin Gifford to sort through the papers of the late Mrs Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh House. He endures an increasingly terrifying sequence of unexplained noises, chilling events and hauntings by a Woman in Black.

What terrors await those unfortunate enough to see the Woman in Black?

THE WOMAN IN BLACK is a gripping theatrical exploration of terror, 'a masterpiece' (The Guardian) that's been thrilling audiences of all ages with its unique blend of suspense, drama and bold stagecraft.

Now celebrating 25 years in the West End, THE WOMAN IN BLACK is 'a marvellous exercise in tension, spun from perfectly paced storytelling' (The Independent) that has enthralled over 7 million people since its original debut.

Feel the power of THE WOMAN IN BLACK for yourself and experience the 'most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter' (The Daily Telegraph).

Malcolm James and Matt Connor have joined the cast of the hit West End thriller based on Susan Hill's chilling ghost story. The Woman in Black is now in its 27th year in London and has been seen by seven million theatre goers.

Directed by Robin Herford and adapted by Stephen Mallatratt, the production was originally performed at the Theatre-By-The-Sea in Scarborough in 1987. It then reached the West End in 1989, where it received critically acclaim and has been playing and terrifying audiences ever since.

A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It all begins innocently enough, but then, as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.

Malcolm James revisits the role of Arthur Kipps, following on from starring in the role on the national tour of the production. His other recent theatre credits includes Birdsong (national tour), Equus (London Classic Theatre) and Potting Shed (Finborough Theatre). Meanwhile, Matt Connor makes his West End debut in The Woman in Black. His previous roles include Sons of the Desert (Royal Court Liverpool) and The Glass Menagerie (Chipping Norton Theatre).

The Woman in Black is currently booking at the Fortune Theatre until the 21st January 2017.
