The talented David Milford and Gil Brady haunt the stage in this intense crawl through the creepy marshes of England's dreary east coast. A middle-aged lawyer enlists a young actor to help him exorcise the demons of his troubled past; as a young solicitor, the lawyer left London to sort out the estate of a client, but soon began seeing visions of a woman dressed in black. Together, the lawyer and his young friend attempt to retrace his steps and discover the truth behind this ghoulish tale.
Perfect for anyone whose nails need an impromptu dental trim, The Woman in Black blurs the boundaries between reality and theater. The final startling surprises will have you talking, dreaming, and eating about the show for weeks to come.
The walls of the intimate theater will fade out of your consciousness as the spine-tingling ghost story unfolds before your eyes. Bring someone you want to closely snuggle, or gear up for Halloween with your ghastly gang. Suitable for ages 14 and up, playwright Stephen Mallatratt's adaptation of Susan Hill's bestselling novel is a scary and delightful alternative to your teenage niece's slasher novels.
