Age Restriction: The Woman in Black is on the National Curriculum for English and Drama, so some performances (especially matinees and on weekdays) are likely to have school groups in attendance.

Important Info: This play is not suitable for those with a nervous disposition or who cannot handle sudden shocks. Please be advised that there is a large possibility of school groups being present at The Woman In Black, especially for Monday to Thursday performances. Latecomers will only be admitted at a suitable time in the performance.

One of the longest running plays in the West End, The Woman in Black has become a British cultural institution. The cast may only be made up of 2 people, but it still packs a punch and is one of the most frightening play around. Playing at the Fortune Theatre since 1989, the story has enjoyed a revived interest after the 2012 film starring Daniel Radcliffe. So, if you’re looking for a play that’s guaranteed to pique your interest and haunt your mind, then you’ll want to join the crowds and see The Woman in Black.

Upon entering the spooky 432 seat theatre, you’ll already feel close up to the action. As the show begins, you’ll learn of Alice Drablow’s death. Having lived and died alone, there is nobody left to sort out her legal matters. So, in steps Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor who is sent to her estate and tackle the paperwork. As he sorts out the piles of paper, he feels a ghostly presence, later spotting a young woman dressed in black in the graveyard.

Arthur Kipps later tells an actor what happened, getting the actor to recreate the scenes so that Kipps is no longer haunted by the woman in black. It’s up to you to book your tickets and find out just why Arthur Kipps wants to get rid of the eerie happenings that happened a long time ago.

Written by Susan Hill in 1983, The Woman in Black has become a West End staple. With later adaptations of the show, there’s nothing quite like seeing the original production. Team the lengthy run with minimal props and a one-of-a-kind story and it all comes together for an unforgettable West End experience. Make sure you’re in on The Woman in Black.
