Susan Hill’s play The Woman In Black Tour will open at the Cambridge Arts Theatre on 17 June 2021. She’s back and coming to a theatre near you.
She’s been haunting the Fortune Theatre for years and now she is sure to be sighted at a theatre near you. Susan Hill’s spine-tingling play is a night at the theatre you’ll never forget. The Woman In Black Tour tickets are now on sale.
WHAT IS THE WOMAN IN BLACK ABOUT?
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 the borders between make-believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins to creep.
The producers are thrilled to confirm that in response to the show’s enduring popularity with young people, those aged 18 and under will be able to see the West End production free of charge, alongside each full paying adult ticket. Additionally, persons aged 25 and under will be eligible for a £25 ticket rate in the West End and at select tour venues.
Producer Peter Wilson said, “The Woman in Black is a now-iconic piece of British theatre, offering a masterclass in storytelling, direction and performing, whether on tour across the United Kingdom or in the West End. Young people are amongst the most loyal supporters of The Woman in Black, and they have suffered significantly from the absence of art and entertainment throughout the past year. With this in mind, we are pleased to be offering younger audience members free and reduced-price tickets in the West End and some touring venues. We cannot wait to bring The Woman in Black to you all again.”

“It is profoundly effective. It tightens its grip on the spectator
like a medieval instrument of torture.”
Daily Express 2018
“The chills are irresistibly effective… a delicious spell of malevolence and menace.”
