“A truly nerve-shredding experience.” The Daily Mail

About Woman In Black

The Woman in Black at the Fortune Theatre combines the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir. It gives audiences an evening of unremitting drama as they are transported into a terrifying and ghostly world.

Now celebrating over 25 years in the West End, over 7 million people having lived to tell, The Woman in Black is one of the most exciting, gripping and successful theatre events ever staged.

In The Woman in Black, at the Fortune Theatre, Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, the sole inhabitant of Eel Marsh House, unaware of the tragic secrets which lie hidden behind the shuttered windows. It is not until he glimpses a wasted young woman, dressed all in black, at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, a feeling deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of The Woman in Black and her terrible purpose.

Years later, as an old man, he recounts his experiences to an actor in a desperate attempt to exorcise the ghosts of the past. The play unfolds around the conversations of these two characters as they act out the solicitor's experiences on Eel Marsh all those years ago. 

Don’t go unless you like being scared out of your wits” Sunday Mirror

“One of the most brilliantly effective spine-chillers you will ever encounter” The Daily Telegraph

“There are no mysteries to this show’s longevity; it works because it’s a piece of highly effective craftsmanship” The Daily Express

“A marvellous exercise in spine tingling tension, spun from perfectly paced storytelling and stagecraft” The Independent

First performed at the Theatre-By-The-Sea in Scarborough back in 1987, it reached the West End in 1989 and the current cast of The Woman in Black are Julian Forsyth (Arthur Kipps) and Antony Eden (The Actor).

Really enjoyed the performance.

6 May

I first saw The Woman In Black over 20 years ago on my first trip to London. I was thrilled to see it was still playing at the Fortune. I love this play! It is simple, very well acted and engaging. I will be an on going tradition to see it when I visit London.

17 April

The whole performance was absolutely outstanding. The actors, the stage and the lightning created a vivid impression of the ghost story. London theatre at its best. We arrived at the Fortune Theatre with an elderly lady who suffered from severe health problems. The staff of the theatre was extremely helpful, gave us the Ambassador box with a privat toilet and checked regularly on our well being. We want to thank the staff once again very much for their above average service on the evening of Wed 13 April 2016.

Brilliant play - starts off slow and builds to a deliciously spine chilling climax

29 March
