Now celebrating more than a quarter of a century in the West End.


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.
