The Woman in Black

SEE EVENT DETAILS
The Woman in Black, the West End smash-hit play, will perform for a limited engagement beginning December 15, 2021 and running through January 16, 2022. Hailed as "a nerve-shredding experience" (Daily Mail) and "ingenious" (New York Times), Susan Hill's gothic ghost story--adapted for the stage by Stephen Mallatratt and directed by Robin Herford--is set in an isolated windswept mansion with tragic secrets hidden behind its shuttered windows. There, a young lawyer encounters horrific visions in the house set amidst the eerie marshes and howling winds of England's forbidding Northeast Coast. Starring Antony Eden and Robin Herford, The Woman in Black offers audiences an evening of unremitting drama and sheer theatricality as they are transported into a chilling and ghostly world.

Robin Herford said, "I'm delighted to open The Woman in Black in the San Francisco Bay Area on the heels of the return of the production to New York City. We are looking forward to spooking the Bay Area this holiday season."

Susan Hill's novel, The Woman in Black, was originally published in 1983 and has thrilled and spooked millions of readers ever since. Robin Herford commissioned Stephen Mallatratt to adapt the novel for the stage in 1987 and it was produced as a Christmas show at the Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough, U.K. After months of sold-out performances, the play transferred to London's West End in January 1989 where it has been enthralling audiences ever since. Numerous national and international tours have followed over the years.
