What is The Woman in Black about?

The story follows Arthur Kipps, a young solicitor who travels to a small town to attend the funeral of a client. While staying in his client's house and going through her paperwork, he learns the terrible secret of The Woman in Black.

The Woman in Black is staged as a play within a play. Arthur Kipps and a young actor perform a manuscript written by Kipps, based on the events he witnessed. This is a dramatic, tense and, at times, spooky theatre show.

A cast member from the Women in Black is holding out his hand with the other cast member in the background.

The play is based on the novel of the same name written by Susan Hill in 1983. It was also made into a film starring Daniel Radcliffe in 2012.
