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.
