The Woman in Black

Casting and Creative Associates Opportunities

The Youth Theatre Project

One of the West End’s longest-running plays, The Woman in Black has been terrifying audiences in London since 1989.

Following the story of lawyer Arthur Kipps, who visits the haunted Eel Marsh House, The Woman in Black is an intense psychological thriller that has gripped audiences for decades. When Alice Drablow of Eel Marsh House dies, Kipps is sent to settle her estate. As he approaches the nearby village, he notices that something is not quite right and soon hears rumours about the doomed Marsh House and fated Woman in Black. Sceptical at first, Kipps takes on the case, but soon regrets his involvement.
