The Woman in Black

Delicate types beware. If you've ever been so terrified by a ghost story or scary movie that you've slept with the lights on for days afterwards, you'll either love this show or hate it. If you get a secret thrill from being scared out of your wits, don't miss it. If being spooked really isn't your thing and you'd rather stay safe from frightening stuff, best give it a miss!

More than seven million people have seen this supremely creepy production, which The Telegraph called, 'The most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter'. High praise indeed, and they're joined by a host more rave reviews. Better still the tiny, weeny Fortune theatre is a brilliant venue for a show like this, small enough to deliver bucketloads of all-important atmosphere.

Now celebrating 30 terrifying years in the West End, of which the talented playwright Robin Herford must be very proud, this is a remarkably convincing essay in top class, spook-filled, un-nerving atmosphere, with plenty of hair-raising illusions and very clever on-stage horror. The Guardian newspaper calls it 'One of British theatre's biggest – and scariest – hits'. See what you think...

Young Couples:

Second time seeing this show in a different location and both times it was absolutely fantastic! Really would recommend

Good show
Thoroughly enjoyed the show. Some comic moments interspersed nicely with a generally suspenseful plot. Great staging and lighting added to the mood.

Scary, daunting!

Fabulous show
I was so glad that the play followed the original story. The actors did an incredible job bringing the show to life. I enjoyed all the jump scares and the actress portraying the woman in black was truly terrifying. I think I was most impressed with the use of the stage space—the way it was set up was eerie (with the curtain shrouding the staircase and the nursery), and the actors used the space masterfully. Really well done!

Loved it!

Everything about this show is fantastic. Not suitable for families with young children but for those with teenagers it's fantastic.

A master class in acting. I was captivated from the very start. The story is so imaginative and creates an eerie atmosphere unfolding a creepy tale of ghostly happenings.

Fantastic show
Went to see this with my mum. Have already read the book and seen the film and this was just as good if not better! Would defiantly see it again!!

Very clever and entertaining.
This is the second time I have seen this show and it's just as good the second time around. It a very clever show with tremendous acting.

Spine tingling
This is an amazing show that has you sitting at the edge of your seat! The actors were brilliant and I throughly enjoyed it. The show is best for teenagers upward because it is scary - even if you already know the story.

Woman In Black Review
Scary story in a very small intimate theatre. For all those theatre goers this is one not to miss.
