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 30 years in the West End with over 7 million people having lived to tell the tale, 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. 

First performed at the Theatre-By-The-Sea in Scarborough back in 1987, it reached the West End in 1989. The current cast of The Woman in Black are Terrence Wilton (TreatmentNever So GoodAntony and Cleopatra) who returns to the role as Arthur Kipps and Max Hitchinson (The Hound of BaskervillesThe Notorious Mrs EbbsmithThe 39 Steps) as The Actor.

Emalia Matin12th March

Incredible show! Only fault is how ridiculously small the women’s toilets are. Smaller than an airplane toilet.

Mr & Mrs Carter11th March

Very good show but not much leg room in the circle upstairs and could do with air as very hot upstairs

Richard Johnson8th March

I’ve seen many plays , some people may enjoy this bit I found it just dull and boring ..... thought it may be bit scary as well .... which it was not ..... would not recommend ... 30 odd years .... how !

Peter Dudley8th March

Superb acting was brilliant loved it

Joy Bartlett8th March

Well acted and very clever stage production

Kevin Peck6th March

The production was excellent mainly due to the two superb cast members and well handled switch between the older 'Kipps' telling the story and the previous events. The only slight downside was being sat in the middle of two coach loads of school children which restricted my wife's view a little as we seemed to have had the tallest in the class in front of us. Two couples were moved to boxes but when we asked we were refused on access grounds...

Stephen Mungavin6th March

Excellent production - the acting, lighting & sound we’re superb

Sumyanghang Limbu5th March

I went to see The Woman in Black with my friend as she was leaving London. When we got there, our seat was upgraded and we were right at the front stall. We were sat near where the actors made entrance so when the woman in black popped up next to us, I almost shat myself but my friend loved seeing my reaction and made fun of me the whole time. I think that’s what she enjoyed the most lol. The experience was thrilling and amazing overall!

Sarah Cooper3rd March

Very disappointing, terrible customer service. Rude staff.

Valerie Thomas1st March

The two actors were excellent and it was quite amazing what they did with the minimum of props and the sound.
