Susan Hill’s The Woman in Black will be traveling across the U.K. after completing a historic 33-year run in London's West End. The tour will kick off later this year and play through April 2023, with further dates and casting to be announced.
Beginning September 6 at Wolverhampton Grand Theatre, the production will subsequently make stops at Cardiff, Billingham, Buxton, Aylesbury, Southend, Richmond, Poole, Nottingham, Liverpool, Norwich, Truro, York, Birmingham, Bradford, Brighton, Ipswich, Glasgow, Milton Keynes, Dartford, High Wycombe, and Crewe.
Directed by Robin Herford, with designs by Michael Holt and lighting by Kevin Sleep, Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best-selling novel centers on a lawyer and the family curse he is obsessed with. As he tries to exorcise his fears with the help of a young actor, the line between playing pretend and reality blur.
The Woman in Black currently plays in the West End at The Fortune Theatre where it completes its run March 4 after 33 years and over 13,000 performances. The show began with a production around Christmas in 1987 at a pub in Scarborough before it transferred to Hammersmith's Lyric Theatre in 1989, which led to its West End run.
