Theatre closures due to coronavirus outbreak

From Saturday 15 August 2020, indoor performances at London theatres are allowed (with social distancing).

Outdoor performances (where possible) can also go ahead.

However, most theatres remain closed as they either do not have outside spaces or regard the need for social distancing as uneconomic.

The show below will not currently be playing, but it may return if indoor performances resume from or after 15 August 2020 and booking for performances beyond that date should be open.

Dates below may reflect any changes we have received since theatres closed.

Show details


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.

Background, advisory warnings

Age suitability: 12+

Now celebrating 30 years in the West End.
