Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best-selling novel 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’. He engages a
young actor to help him tell his story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. 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.
The Woman in Black is directed by Robin Herford, with designs by Michael Holt and lighting by Kevin
