Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best-selling novel The Woman In Black has terrified over seven million theatregoers thanks to Robin Herford’s gripping production. Often limited to the spectacular West End (it’s been running for 27 years!), Leeds-folk will be treated to an incredible performance as the show comes to West Yorkshire Playhouse from 25 to 29 October.

This gripping production is set to be a masterpiece in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror.  Mallatratt’s adaptation tells the story of a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of, you guessed it, 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, the borders between make believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins to creep.

The show, produced by PW Productions, features David Acton in the role of Mr Kipps and Matthew Spencer as The Actor. We reckon it’s going to be spook-tacularly good!
