The second longest-running non-musical play in West End history, after The Mousetrap, The Woman in Black comes to Luxembourg for a 3-night run.
Susan Hill’s The Woman In Black has been ingeniously adapted for the stage by Stephen Mallatratt.
Described as “a brilliantly successful study in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror”, the play centres on 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”. 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.
The Woman in Black published in 1983 and opened in London’s West End in 1989. A film version with Daniel Radcliffe was made in 2012, but it pales in comparison to the theatre adaptation.
