Do you believe in ghosts?
This May, The Sutherland Theatre Company is proudly presenting a strictly limited season of The Woman in Black at Sutherland Memorial School of Arts.

The Woman in Black, adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from Susan Hill's gothic horror novel of the same name, has been seen by over 7 million people worldwide and is the second longest-running non-musical play in West End history.

The Sutherland Theatre Company production is directed by Belinda Balhatchet and features Dirk Strachan-Thornton and Anthony White in the lead roles.


This gripping ghost story set in a small Victorian theatre. Arthur Kipps, an ageing solicitor, engages the services of a professional actor to help him re-enact - and thereby hopefully exorcise - a ghostly event which he experienced many years before. From the cluttered stage, Kipps begins to read his story: painfully, self-consciously and hesitantly at first, but gradually increasing in confidence.

The actor portrays a young Kipps, sent to settle the estate of a deceased elderly recluse, in whose isolated marshland house Kipps encounters the Woman in Black. The ghostly figure unleashes a horrifying sequence of events which culminate in a truly chilling twist in the play's final moments.
