About the event

While continuing it’s record breaking run in London’s West End, The Woman in Black now embarks on a major UK Tour and is coming to Portsmouth.

Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically alive in Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation. Now celebrating 27 terrifying years in the West End, Robin Herford’s gripping production is a brilliantly successful study in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror.

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.

Why not complete your trip with Professor Frederick’s Ghost Walk around our Victorian theatre. When you book your show and tour ticket together, discount will automatically be applied.

Our Thoughts

I saw this show in the West End when I was younger and absolutely loved it.  Hence I am so excited it is coming to our beautiful Victorian venue in Portsmouth.    Andy Marketing Manager
