These 2 actors are INCREDIBLE !!! How do they remember all those lines? Pure love put into their work. Sure did send chills up and down my spine at times. Excellent fun. I will see it again.

Adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from the Book by Susan Hill

Directed by Stephen Hulsey

Arthur Kipps, a middle-aged solicitor, hires a theatre and the services of a professional actor to help him re-enact, and thereby hopefully exorcise, a ghostly event which befell him many years previously with horrifyingly tragic results. Still running in London’s West End after 20 years, The Woman In Black treads in the footsteps of the classic ghost story, following the tradition of Charles Dickens and Henry James. It relies on atmosphere, a vivid sense of place, on hints and glimpses and suggestions, on what is shadowy, heard and sometimes only half-seen, to chill the audience’s blood to the marrow. Not for the faint of heart.
