The West End’s spooky thriller is set to resume performances at the Fortune Theatre from September.
It has been announced that the West End production of The Woman in Black is set to resume performances at the Fortune Theatre from the 7th September.
Based on Susan Hill’s spooky thriller, the story has been adapted for the stage by Stephen Mallatratt and directed by Robin Herford.
A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It all begins innocently enough, but then, as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.
Producers have also confirmed that that there will be free tickets available for under-18s, with one free ticket available alongside each full paying adult ticket. Those under the age of 25 will also be eligible for £25 tickets.
Meanwhile £25 tickets will also be made available for select venues on the show’s UK tour which is set to open at the Cambridge Arts Theatre on the 17th June 2021, before visiting Bath, Guilford, Oxford, Malvern, Shrewsbury, Manchester, Brighton, Glasgow, York, Blackpool, Stoke and Edinburgh.
Talking about the news, producer Peter Wilson said: “The Woman in Black is a now iconic piece of British theatre, offering a masterclass in storytelling, direction and performing, whether on tour across the United Kingdom or in the West End. Young people are amongst the most loyal supporters of The Woman in Black, and they have suffered significantly from the absence of art and entertainment throughout the past year. With this in mind, we are pleased to be offering younger audience members free and reduced-price tickets in the West End and some touring venues. We cannot wait to bring The Woman in Black to you all again.”
Tickets for The Woman in Black at the Fortune Theatre are on sale now.
