A UK Tour of Susan Hill’s THE WOMAN IN BLACK has been announced today, opening at Blackpool Grand Theatre on Wednesday 11 September 2019. Full tour listings below and further dates to be announced.
Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best-selling novel tells the story of a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over his family by the spectre of a ‘Woman in Black’. He engages a young actor to help him tell his story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It begins innocently enough, but as they delve further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds. The borders between make-believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins creep.
In June this year THE WOMAN IN BLACK celebrated its 30th Anniversary in London’s West End with a special gala performance at The Fortune Theatre.
THE WOMAN IN BLACK is directed by Robin Herford, with designs by Michael Holt and lighting by Kevin Sleep.
