Susan Hill's The Woman in Black

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.

Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically alive in Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation. This gripping production, directed by Robin Herford, is a brilliantly successful study in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror.

 

Please Note:
We are so excited to be welcoming our audiences back to Oxford Playhouse.  We want to reassure you that we have implemented all the necessary measures to ensure we are a COVID-19 secure venue and operate within the government guidelines.

View our Covid Secure Measures

  The safety of our audiences, artists and staff remains paramount as we reopen for live events.  For this reason, we have elected to put all new shows on sale with a smaller than usual capacity, as a precautionary measure to enable us to distance our audience members safely.  If restrictions are lifted and audience demands, we will increase capacity for popular events. Oxford Playhouse will continue to adhere to government advice regarding live performances in theatres and other entertainment venues and offer full refunds if bookers test positive for Covid-19.  If you have any concerns or questions, our Box Office team will be happy to talk to you.
