Plays Directory : The Woman in Black

The information below is intended to give you a brief guide to the show and highlight some of the other The Mandy Network members who have also been involved in this show.

  • Author
    Susan Hill (ad. Stephen Mallatratt)
  • Written
    1989 (Novel - 1983)
  • Setting
    England
  • Overview
    A 1983 horror novel by Susan Hill about a menacing spectre that haunts a small English town.

    An extra twist is added in the stage play. In this version, an older Kipps enlists a young actor to help him tell the story of the 'Woman in Black', hoping that this will help him to move on from those events.

    The actor plays the part of the young Arthur Kipps, and as the play progresses it is implied that history may be about to tragically repeat itself.

    As the basis of the entire play is a fictional stage rehearsal within the theatre where the play is staged, the brief, unexpected appearances to the audience of the unbilled Woman in Black, which at the end are revealed to have only appeared to the actor, give a further, darker implication, adding to the story's 'spine chiller' reputation.
