Woman In Black
Masterfully adapted for the stage by Stephen Mallatratt from the chilling 1983 novella by Susan Hill, The Woman in Black has been terrifying audiences at London’s Fortune Theatre since 1989.
The play is the story of Arthur Kipps, a man desperate to rid himself of the ghosts of the past. The elderly Arthur Kipps tells a young actor about the chilling events of thirty years prior when, as a junior solicitor, Kipps was sent to attend the funeral of the recently deceased Alice Drablow and settle her affairs. The conversations between Kipps and the young actor spark a dramatic retelling of the horrors of Eel Marsh House and the ghastly figure of the Woman in Black.
This West End favourite, one of the longest running plays in British theatre history, is a theatrical triumph. Simple props and bone-chillingly effective sound effects keep the audience on the edge of their seats, or cowering under them. The Woman in Black leaves you nowhere to hide with the entire auditorium acting as the set. The surprises can, and do, come from anywhere.
The Woman in Black is an extraordinary feat of suspenseful story-telling, a tense and exhilarating theatrical experience that is a must for Londoners and visitors to the city alike. Both young and old will be enthralled by this gripping and ingeniously crafted night of supremely eerie theatre.

Woman in Black
13 January 2017
A witty, spine-chilling (they're plenty of screams from the audience), experience excellently worked with simplistic effects. The use of sound recordings fitted perfectly with the way the play was portrayed but the 5* rating is very much due to the superb characterisations & performances of what is in essence a 2 man show. Stuart Fox's use of accents & ability to move from a shambling whispering Mr Kipps to the other characters was funny & fascinating. Thank you

Although it's not a must-see, it is worth seeing. The first 15 - 20 minutes are painful and I was beginning to think I'd leave at the intermission, but I'm glad I stayed. Don't go out of your way to see it, but if you get a good deal go for it. A little predictable, very slightly spine-tingling, a bit hokey but ok just the same.

The Horror continues

Once again I had the pleasure to witness the spinechilling story of the woman in black. This is the third cast I see and the incredible thing about this show is that it delivers no matter the cast. Its in the very fibers of the Fortune Theatre this story is and it takes actors with great precision to play this and they do it wonderfully. Thank you for another great evening. I finally got to witness this show that means so much for me with the woman of my life and we both were amazed. Thank you

Scream if you enjoy the show
13 July 2016
The play starts slowly, but quickly gathers momentum, drawing the audience into a hair-raising ghost story that left the spectators screaming out loud more than once. Excellent entertainment with only two drawbacks: 1: many spectators do not seem to distinguish between a play amd the cinema, munching popcorn while the actors are performing, and 2: after an excellent performance the actors bow once and leave. Maybe I'm a country bumpkin, but Ibelieve a play should be more than that, and enjoyed appropriately.

Amazing performance and a must see!

I went to see Woman in Black with my girlfriend on a Thursday evening. The theatre wasn't full, but it still had a good showing. The stage was small, but well designed. I knew my girlfriend hates being scared, but even she could admit the performance was great! She was scared and so was I... It had everything from thrill to horror and even to our surprise comedy! Yet, the most impressive part was the acting and how the show was conducted by two main actors and the woman in black. Obviously, the production team needs to get a mention, but the actors kept the audience engaged and hooked. I would go again and get middle stall seats!

Excellent acting from the cast of two, minimal props but boring to the audience. The woman could have been anyone and an imaginable dog was slightly amusing!
