This summer Main Street Theater (MST) is producing the spine-tingling ghost story, The Woman in Black, based on the acclaimed novel by Susan Hill, adapted by Stephen Mallatratt.

The Woman in Black runs July 13, - August 11, 2024 at MST's Rice Village location, 2540 Times Blvd., 77005.. Performances are Thursday - Saturdays at 7:30pm and Sundays at 3:00pm. Tickets are $39 - $59.

MST will host a Pride Night event in connection with the August 8 performance, and the July 14 performance offers open captioning.

"It was nine-thirty on a Christmas Eve." Arthur Kipps is obsessed with a curse he believes has been cast over him and his family by the specter of a "Woman in Black," for it is believed that anyone who sees her will die. He hires a skeptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story to exorcise the fear that grips his soul. Things begin innocently enough, but as they reach further into Arthur's darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.
