A Gothic Ghost Story Makes Its Way onto the Royal George Theater Stage

Over eight million people have lived to tell the tale of one of the most successful – and terrifying – theatre events ever staged, and this weekend, it comes to shock Chicago audiences. The Woman in Black, London's long-running West End play, will open at Chicago's Royal George Theatre Friday, November 23rd, with all the stage thrills that have made the play a London sensation for 30 years.

Susan Hill's Gothic ghost story, adapted for the stage by Stephen Mallatratt, is set in an isolated windswept mansion with tragic secrets hidden behind its shuttered windows. There, a young lawyer encounters horrific visions in the house set amidst the eerie marshes and howling winds of England's forbidding Northeast Coast. With just two actors, The Woman in Black offers audiences an evening of unremitting drama and sheer theatricality as they are transported into a chilling and ghostly world.

“The chills are irresistibly effective… a delicious spell of malevolence and menace,” says Time Out. The Daily Mail even called it “a truly nerve-shredding experience!”

Tickets for The Woman in Black are now available for purchase online.
