See The Woman In Black at the Fortune Theatre
Stephen Mallatratt’s chilling stage adaptation of Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story The Woman In Black is one of the West End’s most enduring productions. Now in its 31st year, British theatre has had few scarier hits. Pick up your Woman in Black tickets here.
Full of suffocating atmosphere, illusion and horror, The Woman in Black concerns the story of lawyer Arthur Kipps. Believing he and his family have been cursed by the spectre of the Woman in Black, Kipps hires a young actor to help him retell the story and - he hopes - finally exorcise his demons, until things all start to go wrong…
This adaptation of the Woman in Black is known for its intensity, given that only two actors are required to perform it. The production first opened at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough in 1987. It moved to London’s West End in 1989, where it has remained ever since at the 432-seat Fortune Theatre. It is now the second longest-running non-musical show on the West End behind The Mousetrap.
From March 2019 Stuart Fox returned for the third time to play Mr Kipps, having first played the role five years prior. Fox is best known for playing Rock Head in the 1986 rock biopic Sid and Nancy. The Actor - who is tasked with playing the younger Kipps - was played by Matthew Spencer, who played Syme in the recent 2013 stage version of George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four.
Both Fox and Spencer have previously starred in the show both on the West End and in its UK tour, which is next set to take place between September 2019 and May 2020. Full of scares and spectacular special effects, don’t pass up on the opportunity to catch this classic West End horror story. Make sure to purchase your Woman in Black tickets now.
