Written by Stephen Malatratt

Based on the novel by Susan Hill

Directed by Angie Higgins

Arthur Kipps is compelled to finally tell the tale that has long troubled him concerning events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse. Townspeople warned him not to go near the woman’s dreary home, and no one would explain or even acknowledge the menacing woman in black he kept seeing. But he ignored the townspeople’s cryptic warnings, and went to the house where he discovered its horrible history and became ensnared in its even more horrible legacy.

Northside Theatre Company (NTC) was founded in 1978 by current managing artistic director, Richard Orlando. In 1980, NTC became a registered non-profit organization. Northside is currently in its 28th season and receives national attention for new play development while leading the way in re-defining the integrity and importance of small theatre organizations and their critical importance to the development of industry standards and emerging artists. Committed to theatre for all people, without regard to age, race, creed, culture or physical abilities, Northside is devoted to the manifestation of the human spirit by creating dramatic art through heart, collaboration and exploration.

For 28 years, Northside hallmarks have been experimentation, education and performance. Northside Theatre Company has been as much a philosophy as a production company.
