The Woman in Black

Date: 6 Apr 2021

One of the long-running plays in West End history makes its way to the close quarters of Ensemble’s intimate stage.

Mr Kipps (Jamie Oxenbould) is troubled by disturbing memories of his journey to fog bound Eel Marsh, where Mrs Drablow’s lonely house stands in isolation.

Trapped by the fog, he witnessed mysterious events he would rather forget, but cannot. In desperation, he enlists the help of an actor (Garth Holcombe) to tell his tale and exorcise the demons that haunt his dreams. As the two men become immersed in Kipps’ story, eerie events materialise from the mists of the past and begin to haunt the present.

Susan Hill’s classic ghost story is adapted for the stage by Stephen Mallatratt. Mark Kilmurry directs.
