See it if You seek an eerie and frightening story with a small venue and cast, with creepy and inventive writing, direction and design.

Don't see it if You aren’t a massive fan of horror, dislike jump-scares or if you would prefer something performed on a larger scale.

For a previous production

The Woman in Black tells its supernatural tale in a unique way using basic props and allowing the audience to use their imagination to create a truly fearful horror story. The tension is high and sudden the ‘jump out of your seat’ moments come thick and fast!

For a previous production

It is a clever tale that is full of surprises and suspense...It is not hard to see why this show has lasted so long, I sincerely hope that it makes it through another 3,000 performances.
