I Really enjoyed the Woman in black at the fortune theatre and i got plenty of jump scares. The acting was amazing but dragged on a bit at the beginning. I think that for 2 actors to carry this off word perfect and very expression and emotion shown on their faces was amazing too. The theatre was small and intimate which was perfect for this production, although i was sat cuddled up to someone the whole time, i thoroughly enjoyed it, I was also on the isle therefore the women walked straight past me which i couldn’t tell whether i liked or not.

Saw this production with a friend on 21.9.17......... Absolutely fabulous ! Anyone who critiques anything negative about it has NO IMAGINATION !!!!!! For 2 actors to carry this off word perfect and every expression and emotion shown on their faces and in their voice was something to behold . We had been to see Les Mis the night before a much greater cost and a very expensive production BUT enjoyment wise we loved this one .......those 2 actors should be so proud and take a bow , and ones who didn't enjoy the pathetic film , you don't need an imagination or a brain

I enjoyed the women in black and my friends and I got plenty of jump scares, the only thing was the positions of the seats was not very good. the actors were good but the story sort of dragged in at first but it does get better. well done!

Attended on Friday 1st July. The venue was small and intimate. Perfect for an atmospheric production. It was a fantastic evening at the theatre and thoroughly spooky. The acting was tremendous. Had the creeps all the way home. Understand why the ghost couldn't take a bow and glad she didn't. She scared the he'll out of me. Bravo cast.

Absolutely brilliant, the actors were superb. My 13 year old son and I were enthralled from start to finish. We can thoroughly recommend. Best money I've spent on entertainment in a very, very long time. Very small, quaint, old theatre so all seats had a good view, not much leg room though!

A complete bore from beginning to end.

Have read the book(Several times) even have a audio copy on my phone, love it that much. Saw the film RUBBISH nothing to do with book, cant believe they had audacity to call it by the same name. Have seen play which I enjoyed despite noisy school trip. Have booked to see it again..

I shouldn't have listen to HER! She said "it's gonna be good cos it is a west end production". Next time, baby, it has got to be THRILLER! What was more disappointing though was the chair that did not allow me to sleep more the half an hour.... The ice cream was very good.

I WANT A REFUND. it was like a bad school play.. they tried to make it funny??? Where were the beautiful sets? Omg it was awful. The w in b was doing lunges.. and running in and out of the room. TO THE DIRECTOR: THIS IS NOT WORKING. GO BACK TO THE ORIGINAL APPROACH.

The actors were over acting. Stamping and school cchildren act when they play the part of an angry adult. Omg awful.
