The Woman in Black

Playing at the Fortune Theatre, London since 1989 this spine-chilling drama is tremendously effective at scaring the audience. An exercise (or exorcise?) in minimal technical effects, sound effects are used to startling effect, and the simple staging helps the atmosphere enormously. If you’ve not seen it yet, make a beeline for it the next time you’re in London.

The story was recently made into a feature film starring Daniel Radcliffe.

Written by Stephen Mallatratt and directed by Robin Herford.
