Come experience what over 7 million theater-goers have discovered as “the most brilliantly effective spine-chiller you will ever encounter” (Daily Telegraph). Currently in its 27th year on London’s West End, Stephen Mallatratt’s haunting adaptation of Susan Hill’s hair-raising ghost story comes to Austin just in time for the Halloween season.
A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the specter of a Woman in Black, engages a skeptical 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 moving shadows and deadly secrets.
