The Woman in Black

A 1987 stage play, adapted by Stephen Mallatrat

One of the most thrilling and long-running plays in West End history makes its way into IO Performance.

"Provides a pleasurable ripple of fear down one's spine and an uncomfortable lurch in the pit of one's stomach." - Time Out New York.

One of the most thrilling and long-running plays in West End history makes its way into IO Performance.

​The Woman in Black is a 1987 stage play, adapted by Stephen Mallatratt. The play is based on the 1983 book of the same name by English author Susan Hill. The framework of this spine-tingler is unusual: a lawyer hires an actor to tutor him in recounting to family and friends a story that has long troubled him concerning events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse. There he caught sight of the woman in black, the mere mention of whom terrifies the locals, for she is a spectre who haunts the neighborhood where her illegitimate child was accidentally killed.

Anyone who sees her dies! The lawyer has invited some friends to watch as he and the actor recreate the events of that dark and stormy night. A classic of the genre.
