I saw this years ago in London and I was really looking forward to this production. I was definitely not disappointed. Two actors take command of the stage for the full length, changing characters, wardrobe, and accents as they go along. It truly...continued

The Woman in Black is a genuinely scary production, perfect for the season. A classic ghost story that keeps you guessing right up to the final line as a grieving, tortured lawyer hires an arrogant actor to help him relate his true story of a...continued

Adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from the book by Susan Hill

Directed by David Chorley

STAGEStheatre delivers a dark Halloween treat to its audiences this year with Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of The Woman in Black.

The show combines the power and intensity of live theatre with the cinematic quality of film noir. Unanimously acclaimed by the critics and now celebrating a run of over 14 years in London’s West End, The Woman in Black is a classic ghost story.

At the helm of this dark tale is one of Orange County’s finest directors, David Chorley. An accomplished director, producer, sound designer and actor, he has directed and produced more than 15 plays, and has acted in almost 80. In 1999 he created and became the artistic director of The Standing Room Only Theater Company in Mesa, Arizona, and a year later confounded Shakespeare on the River Theater in Phoenix. David became the youngest contracted theater director in Arizona history when Valley Youth Theater hired him to direct at age 21. In 2002, he received Arizona’s Best Direction award from a notable area critic for his production of Neil Simon’s Rumors, which went on to win Best Comedy that year as well.  He also won an AriZoni Theater Award for Best Direction for his work on The Emperor’s New Clothes.

Some of David’s favorite directing/producing projects have included Little Footsteps, Laughter on the 23rd Floor, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Othello, Moon Over Buffalo, The Odd Couple, Fools, and, most recently, Father of the Bride. David is also a proud member of Improv Shmimprov, based in Fullerton, CA.
