The Woman in Black is back this summer.

Tickets are on sale now.

And in even more exciting news, those aged 18 and under will be able to see the West End production free of charge, alongside each full paying adult ticket. And there are reduced price tickets for young adults too, with those aged 25 and under eligible for a £25 ticket rate in the West End and at select tour venues. Casting for both productions will be announced soon.

“Young people are amongst the most loyal supporters of The Woman in Black, and they have suffered significantly from the absence of art and entertainment throughout the past year.” 

Peter Wilson, Producer

Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best-selling novel tells the story of a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over his family by the spectre of a ‘Woman in Black’. He engages a young actor to help him tell his story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It begins innocently enough, but as they delve further into his darkest memories the borders between make-believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins to creep.

The 2021 UK Tour opens at Cambridge Arts Theatre before visiting Bath, Guilford, Oxford, Malvern, Shrewsbury, Manchester, Brighton, Glasgow, York, Blackpool, Stoke and Edinburgh. Further tour dates to be announced.
