The Woman In Black

By Stephen Mallatratt, based on the novel by Susan Hill

The Famous Ghost Story/Thriller

Aug 05 - Sep 3, 2011

Who can say the supernatural doesn't exist? The Woman In Black prompts the question, one of the most authentic, cleverly devised, gripping and acclaimed ghost story/thrillers to reach the stage, full of subtle surprises and suspense. The play is an enormous theatrical phenomenon, running for the past 24 years in London. The remarkably plausible story tells how a London solicitor is plagued by an unsettling event in the past and in a desperate attempt to expunge feelings of unease and foreboding, he enlists the aid of an actor to help recreate the troubling event. The outcome may cause playgoers to be even more suspicious of things that go bump in the night! The play is set in an old theatre, a perfect fit for the PPP.
