Get Discounts On The Woman In Black London Tickets!

A horror story presented in the form of a play doesn’t seem like the brightest idea what with the limitations and challenges of performing in front of a live audience. But ‘The Woman in Black’ isn’t your average horror story and this isn’t your average West End production. The now iconic stage play first opened in 1989 and there’s been no stopping this horror juggernaut ever since! The second longest-running play in West End history, ‘The Woman in Black’ is classic horror done right.

About the Show


Adapted from a 1987 stage play which was based on the book written by English author Susan Hill, ‘The Woman in Black’ is unique in more ways that one. The biggest draw would be the fact that the entire play only features two actors! Currently, the cast includes Terence Wilton as Arthur Kipps and James Byng as The Actor. In 1989, when the show first opened, the cast featured Charles Kay as Arthur Kipps and John Duttine as The Actor.

The Story

While the book this show is based on, features a linear narrative, the West End production has included the added element of a play within a play. The Woman in Black is the story of Arthur Kipps, a talented solicitor who is visiting the far-off town of Crythin Gifford to be at the memorial service of a client, Mrs. Alice Drablow. While at the funeral, Kipps witnesses a mysterious woman dressed in all black with a ghastly face. Startled, Kipps enquires about the woman in black to the local townsfolks but doesn’t get any response.

While in the town, he is also assigned with sorting his client’s papers, for which he visits Eel Marsh House, his deceased client's home. While going through Mrs Drablow's papers, he finds a crate of letters, and at last uncovers the dreadful mystery of the Woman in Black – to his own surprise. In the play, Kipps recruits an actor to help tell the unnatural things he has witnessed. What begins as an innocent investigation soon turns into a deep journey into Kipps’ deepest and darkest memories, one where haunted marshes and vengeful winds are commonplace!
