Now in its 28th year on London’s West End, and unanimously acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, The Woman In Black will chill, as it builds to its terrifying climax in four special performances in Victoria’s Yarra Valley this August and September.
The Woman In Black is a terrifying trip through time into a tragic and ghostly world where the horrors of the supernatural combine with the power and intensity of live theatre to send shock waves through the audience with splendid thrills and chills.
In this brilliant adaptation of Susan Hill’s horror novella, a traumatized man recruits a young actor to help him exorcise the ghost of the Woman in Black. As the two men perform the story, they combine some of the oldest theatrical techniques with modern cinematic styling.
Adapted for the stage by Stephen Mallatratt, it has been produced in over 40 countries and has thrilled audiences the world over with its heart-stopping story. This incredible production features two amazing actors who tell their story in an old fashioned way, relying on atmosphere, on hints, glimpses and suggestions, heard and sometimes only half seen.
In 2012, came the release of the big screen version starring Harry Potter’s Daniel Radcliffe, which with its spectacular box office became the biggest selling UK horror movie of the last twenty years.
Brought to you by an exciting new theatre company, RedFox3, The Woman In Black will be directed by award winning director Justin Stephens, a resident of the Yarra Valley. Stephens is emerging as one of Melbourne’s most electrifying directors. He has been commissioned by a number of companies and acclaimed by critics.
“I love to be scared, and this story is truly creepy,” said Stephens. “The show can be truly terrifying to watch, one that you can’t look away from, even though you wish you could. It’s this kind of Theatre that fascinates me.”
“Whenever you can rivet someone to their seats and extract an intense emotional reaction it’s an amazing experience. If it’s comedy or drama…or in this case, horror, I don’t mind. I’m most interested in shows that stay with me long after the curtain has fallen.”
“Prepare to be haunted by one of the best horror stories you will ever see on the stage.” – HELLO Magazine
