Theatre Preview: The Woman in Black, 15 – 20 February, King’s Theatre, Edinburgh

8 Feb

Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best selling novel The Woman in Black comes to Edinburgh’s King’s Theatre from Monday 15 – Saturday 20 February.

Said to combine the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir, audiences are provided with “an evening of unremitting drama as they are transported into a terrifying and ghostly world.”

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 as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.  The borders between make believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins to creep…

More information is available over on the King’s Theatre website.
