After More Than Three Decades In The West End The Woman in Black Plays Out Its Terrifying Plot Twists @ Theatre Royal Brighton

Celebrating over thirty years in the West End, more than seven million people have lived to tell the tale of The Woman in Black, one of the most chilling and successful theatre events ever staged.

The Woman in Black combines the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir. 

The formula delivers an evening of unremitting drama, transporting the audience into a terrifying and ghostly world.
 
Stephen Mallatratt's adaptation of Susan Hill's bestselling novel heads to Theatre Royal Brighton, later this month, and 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'

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.
 
Robert Goodale returns to the role of Arthur Kipps, having played the part during the 2019-2020 tour of The Woman in Black.
