I have seen the woman in black before with a different climax. That was scarier but this performance was great too. 30 years and counting. Best of luck!

Having seen the film I booked this for my wife’s Birthday knowing she loved the film version. Absolutely brilliant, the acting was first class and the time flew past as we, like the rest of the audience were totally engaged with the performance. Brilliant acting, well delivered and we would definitely recommend this to anyone.

The first act was boring, no microphone so you can't hear properly. Only to actors that change characters.. hard to follow especially if you are not an English native speaker. The only action in the play was the scary parts and even then I felt that all the screaming were exaggerated! All my family fell asleep.. Waste of time and money as a tourist

In the true style if a thriller, this clever production manages to capture your imagination with minimal cast, staging and effects. Slow to setup, the second act literally had audience gasping and shrieking. Enjoy!

We had seen the show on tour in our local theatre and thought it was brilliant. The acting was outstanding, allowing you to us your imagination. The actors brought the story to life, with humour and emotion. I cannot praise the actors enough they were brilliant. The staging was so atmospheric which added to the tension and suspense. The theatre is small and felt you had your own private showing. I recommend highly.

Thoroughly enjoyed the show. I had heard that this play was very scary, my daughter clung to my arm like a limpet throughout but I didn’t find it scary other than it made you jump a few times. Great acting and very clever in the way it was presented ie one actor playing several roles although I did get confused a couple of times as to whether we were in the past or the present day. Wouldn’t recommend for anybody under about 15.

Thoroughly enjoyed the play - excellent use of costumes and clever use of minimal props. Needs to come with a seat warning for tall people. We paid for front row in the dress circle.

This is my new favorite play, hands down. The Woman in Black adapts the novel perfectly; the tale, now a screenplay, it acted out by the victim of the ghost and an enthusiastic theatre coach in a haunting performance that gradually consumes their reality. The old man, resigned to face his demons, takes on the supporting roles in a humorous, but emotional, way as he finds excitement in this play. Meanwhile, our acting coach takes on the identity of his student in his younger days, reliving the traumatic experience that scarred him for a lifetime. The acting was phenomenal, with both actors playing their 'real life' roles acting as the characters from the ghost story. I reccomend sitting clsoe to the stage to get a good look at their facial expressions, as there are several scenes that rely heavily on nonverbal dialogue. Also, if you are short, try the aisle....unless you scare easily; the Woman in Black, among others, takes to strolling the aisle throughout the performance, so you're in for a fright when she slips past. There are several loud noises, including a Nazgul worthy scream and the sound of a child drowning, not to mention nearly two hours of suspense and jump scares. prepare to be startled and disturbed, and you'll be in for a treat. Both actors create a compelling retelling of the story, and interact with the audience so thoroughly that you become a part of the cast... and by extension, another victim of the curse.
