"Second Wind effortlessly enthralls with taut, gripping suspense," writes Albert Goodwyn of SF Bay Times and Doctor Theatre Bliss.

Fog and haunted houses, supernatural happenings, sea mists and dark apparitions all combine in this bone-chilling ghost story. A grieving lawyer believes a curse has been cast over him and his family by the specter of the woman in black. In an attempt to exorcise the spirit he engages a young actor to help him tell his story. But as the border between reality and fantasy blur, the horror starts and the flesh begins to creep.

The Woman in Black treads in the footsteps of the classic ghost story, following the tradition of Edgar Allen Poe and Charles Dickens. The second longest running play on the London stage, it is not only an audience favorite but also the winner of multiple awards (LA Times Critics Choice, 4 Drama Critics Circle Awards, and a Backstage West Critics Pick).

"One of the most brilliantly effective spine-chillers you will ever encounter." --The Daily Telegraph.
