Susan Hill's The Woman In Black

Adapted by Stephen Mallatratt
Directed by Robin Herford

Run time: 2 hours, 15 minutes (including intermission)

Halloween comes early this year with a bone-chilling ghost story that will shake you to your core. Arthur Kipps never believed in the supernatural until he came face to face with evil. Tonight—desperate to exorcise his demons—he will tell his haunting tale…no matter the consequences. For over 28 years, The Woman in Black has thrilled audiences on London’s West End. Now, CPH launches the North American tour of this spine-tingling production.
