A lawyer is obsessed with the belief that his family has been cursed by a Woman in Black – in an attempt to exorcise the evil, he employs a skeptical young actor to help recount his experiences, but then as the story unfolds -the boundary between reality and memory begin to merge. This nail biting adaptation combines the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir. Book a Woman in Black Theatre Break and you’ll be transported into a terrifying and ghostly world.
Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s novel is one of London’s truly succesful plays. It has been playing at the Fortune Theatre for many years and still attracts a keen and eager audience. Midweek matinee performances can be rather dominated by school groups so a Friday or Saturday night is the time to go for a more sophisticated crowd, and a more normal London theatre experience.
However, “normal” is not a word to describe this remarkable production. With few props and scenery the small cast manage to create a peice of theatre that is everybit as gripping as the finest movies or books of the genre.
