What is The Woman in Black about?

Starring Stuart Fox in the role of Arthur Kipps alongside Matthew Spencer as the actor, THE WOMAN IN BLACK is ‘a marvellous exercise in tension, spun from perfectly paced storytelling’ (The Independent) that has enthralled over 7 million people since its original debut.

A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It all begins innocently enough, but then, as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.

Feel the power of THE WOMAN IN BLACK for yourself and experience the ‘most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter’ (The Daily Telegraph).
