A West End Hit in London, this effective and alluring spine chiller starred John Waters and Brett Tucker. The Hong Kong Tour starred Robin Herford and Bret Tucker. The Woman in Black also toured New Zealand, where it starred Robin Herford and Mark Healy. Unanimously acclaimed by the critics, Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best selling novel combines the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir.

Directed by Robin Herford, Scenic design by Michael Holt, Lighting Design by Damien Cooper and Sound Design by Michael Waters

    The Sunday Age
  • "The Woman in Black is a heart-pumping, spine-tingling, hold-your-breath, jumpin-in-your-seat scarification at its theatrical best."
  • "Darkly humorous with a razor sharp edge, this show is a winner."
