Tonight marked my second visit to watch the The Woman In Black. 11 years after coming with school when I was a drama student. This play really captivates the realism of the book written by Susan Hill, bringing the creepy, jumpy and yet (at times)...More

Saw this 20 years ago and so happy to appreciate it after such a long time. Actors were fantastic and plot did not disappoint. Drinks were horrendously expensive and seats tiny those with long legs need not attend!
