I thoroughly enjoyed the performance- I was hooked from the beginning a brilliantly told ghost story! I could quite happily go and watch it again. I laughed and jumped at tense scenes- the acting was superb. Will go up there in my top 10.

A good performance initially I was unsure of how well it was going to work as deliberate production and constant references to the audience but the characters and cast were convincing despite the reliance on imagination. It was terrifying in places once you accepted the simple set.

The acting is outstanding. The stage is slightly getting on abit but still has the desired effect. Smoke on the right side poured out straight into the audience.very jumpy and brilliant suspense. Other than that perfect.

I found the show kind of hard to get into...wasn’t like I expected. Was a few jumpy bits but to be honest myself and partner left half way through. I was willing to continue to watch the show and give it a chance but the seats were so uncomfortable. We’re a young couple and neither of us could stop fidgeting.

Unfortunately was a bit disappointed took a long time to get started , & wasn’t as scary as I predicted it to be the theatre was really cramped and the seats were really uncomfortable, and during the first half of the production a woman had her bag stolen so word of warning don’t pit your bag on the floor

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. The leg room was very squishy - not comfortable if you are over 5.5 foot unfortunately. Drinks pricey. White wine £9.50 a glass.

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.

From start to finish you’re on edge, The Woman in Black is an extremely fresh and exciting take on theatrical horror. For being a lover of scary movies and all things creepy, I never expected to get scarred from a play. How wrong I was. I felt like I was in a real life horror film and with out the luxury of pausing it when things get too scary, I was shook to the core. The ending not only leaves you uneasy and wanting more but also unbelievingly frightened. Word of advice for future people seeing this: get a night light!

Let’s start by saying that my ticket was upgraded, and that made my day instantly. I had the chance to sit 3 rows away from the main stage. The venue was narrow yet cozy. Big applause to the actors who were able to create such a captivating atmosphere with the aid of a couple of lights and props. I still cannot believe how breathtaking their performance has been. At the end of the show I was tempted to walk back and buy another ticket. Not so bad for a Valentine’s Day solo theatrical date!
