Why Watch The Woman in Black
Holding a record for successfully captivating audiences for 30 consecutive years in London, The Woman in Black is widely regarded as one of the finest examples of the theatrical horror genre. Written by the prolific Susan Hill, The Woman in Black was adapted for theatre by Stephen Mallatratt and directed by Robin Herford. In fact, the show has become a standard study in on-stage illusions, atmosphere, and sustained horror. It is considerably more difficult to induce fear in a theatrical setting when compared with a movie.
The special effects, sound, and dialogue must be milked to their full potential to produce a satisfactory result, and The Woman in Black goes far beyond satisfactory. Besides the play itself, Fire & Stone is an exceptional place to enjoy a meal. With their impressive collection of homemade pizzas, burgers, pasta, and salads, they have risen to become one of the most popular eateries in the area.
The Woman in Black is narrated by an elderly gentleman named Arthur Kipps. In an attempt to exorcise the demons of his past, Kipps hopes to read an autobiographical piece to his family and friends. He begins by reenacting the day his boss sent him to a small village called Crythin Gifford on the northern coast of Britain to solicit the estate of a client who has passed away. Driven by his thirst for adventure and haughtiness, the young solicitor sets out to spend nights alone at the Eel Marsh House, which stands at a considerable distance from the rest of the village. What ensues is a truly horrifying tale of unleashed evil.
