We went to a performance of the WIB as part of our Son's 21st birthday celebrations, and it proved to a spooky treat with a sense of humour that is missing from the film and a better ending. There are only two actors (not including...More

This is a marvellous play with just two actors interchanging roles and rearranging their own stage. Brilliant acting will have the audience alternating between laughing and screaming in horror. I had a great time and would most definitely recommend it.

Ok, its not awful but very average. Me and my fiancé were a tad underwhelmed after the glowing reviews and my mate saying how much spookier and better it was than the movie. Well, it isn't. It wasn't scary in the slightest. The 2 actors...More

This play is neither rubbish or good, its just ok. I cannot deny I left the theatre with more a feeling of disappointment than having just been enthralled, entertained or scared. Fair play to the two actors who make the most of what they have...More

I would say a 12 and 14 year old should be fine it's jumpy scary in a good way not like graphic horror. My daughter was just 15 and she loved it. Such a clever play. Enjoy xx
We are going to see Woman in Black in the next few days with 2 secondary school youngsters but have recently had a close bereavement int he family. Will the play be upsetting?

It's an extremely small theatre but I'd say dress circle. We were stalls and it was too close
