A scary tale based on a gothic novella comes to the Arts Theatre
Fancy being scared witless? The spine-chilling The Woman in Black stage show at the Arts Theatre, runs from 26 September to 1 October. Known for its masterful tension building and unique staging, over seven million theatregoers have enjoyed this show so far, making it one of the most successful theatre productions ever.
Based on Susan Hill’s gothic novella of the same name, the plot concerns a young lawyer, fixated on the curse he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a woman in black. To help him exorcise the fear he’s gripped by, he enlists the help of a young actor to tell his story, but things begin to go eerily awry as they delve into his darkest memories.
Using the whole theatre as a set, this show isn’t for the faint-hearted. In fact, be prepared to jump out of your seats while witnessing all manner of terrifying noises and bumps in the dark…
The shows start at 2.30pm (Thursday and Saturday only) and 7.45pm and tickets cost £18-£33.
