The Woman In Black is set for a week long run in Sheffield.

The Woman in Black, which was made into a blockbuster film starring Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe, opens at the Lyceum tonight and runs until Saturday.

A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over his family by the spectre of a ‘Woman in Black’ engages a young actor to help him tell his story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul.

It begins innocently enough, but as they delve further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.
