Must see, Slow

See it if A west end classic for a reason. Spooky two hander that does what it says.

Enchanting, Cliched, Delightful, Great acting, Entertaining

See it if you don’t want to miss this longtime London staple before it exits stage left. It was old-fashioned spooky fun and thoroughly charming.

Don't see it if you want something less predictable and more fear-inducing.

Great acting, Confusing

See it if You like listening to good drama, appreciate great acting.

Don't see it if You've already seen it years ago and expect the same. It's modernised. Seriousness's gone, all chill effects replaced by comical scenes...

Yet the shrieks and gasps that greet the performance demonstrate that, even in the twenty-first century, this doughty little drama still casts its delicious spell of malevolence and menace.

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!

The old stories are always the best - and this one has lost none of its power to terrify.

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.
