Scary drama The Woman in Black at the Lyceum, Sheffield

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.

Susan Hill’s acclaimed ghost story comes dramatically alive in Stephen Mallatratt’s ingenious stage adaptation, directed here by Robin Herford, and is described as “a masterclass in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror”.
