“One of British theatre's biggest – and scariest – hits” - The Guardian
"The most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter" - Daily Telegraph

Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story is brought to dramatic life in Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation. The framework of this spine tingler is unusual: a lawyer hires an actor to tutor him in recounting to family and friends a story that has long troubled him concerning events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse. There he caught sight of the woman in black, the mere mention of whom terrifies the locals, for she is a specter who haunts the town where her illegitimate child was accidentally killed. The lawyer has invited some friends to watch as he and the actor recreate the events of that dark and stormy night. A classic of the genre.
