PW Productions have announced casting for the return of Susan Hill’s THE WOMAN IN BLACK, which resumes performances at The Fortune Theatre in London’s West End on Tuesday 7 September 2021.
Terence Wilton and Max Hutchinson will return as ‘Arthur Kipps’ and ‘The Actor’ respectively when the long-running West End production re-opens.
The producers have also announced that in response to the show’s enduring popularity with young people, those aged 18 and under will be able to see the West End production free of charge, alongside each full paying adult ticket.
In June 2019 THE WOMAN IN BLACK celebrated its 30th Anniversary in London’s West End with a special gala performance.
Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best-selling novel tells the story of a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over his family by the spectre of a ‘Woman in Black’. He engages a young actor to help him tell his story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It begins innocently enough, but as they delve further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds. The borders between make-believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins creep.
THE WOMAN IN BLACK is directed by Robin Herford, with designs by Michael Holt and lighting by Kevin Sleep.
