TIP Second Stage Program to Present THE WOMAN IN BLACK, 10/28-31


Our exciting Second Stage program continues with the critically acclaimed ghost play, "The Woman in Black", adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from the book by Susan Hill.

Starring Antun Percic and Ron Scott. Directed by Jonah Hagans.

Proud and solitary, Eel Marsh House surveys the windswept reaches of the salt marshes beyond Nine Lives Causeway. Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, the house's sole inhabitant, unaware of the tragic secrets which lie hidden behind the shuttered windows. It is not until he glimpses a wasted young woman, dressed all in black, at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, a feeling deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black - and her terrible purpose. Years later, as an older man, he recounts his experiences to an actor in a desperate attempt to exorcise the ghosts of the past. The play unfolds around the conversations of these two characters as they act out the solicitor's experiences on Eel Marsh all those years ago.

The unanimously acclaimed play The Woman in Black combines the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir. It gives audiences an evening of unremitting drama as they are transported into a terrifying and ghostly world.

Stephen Mallatratt's adaptation of the original novel by Susan Hill is the second longest running play in the history of the West End. In June 2011, the play celebrated 23 years playing in the West End, and has already surpassed 9000 performances.
