The Woman In Black set to scare Salford

By • Northwest
If you are feeling that Christmas was an anti-climax, the Lowry are hoping that you long to be scared witless in the New Year, as The Woman In Black returns to Salford.

Unanimously acclaimed by the critics, Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best selling novel combines the power and intensity of live theatre with a cinematic quality inspired by the world of film noir. It is a formula that provides audiences with an evening of unremitting drama as they are transported into a terrifying and ghostly world.

A lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It all begins innocently enough, but as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds. The borders between make believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins to creep...

Now in its 21st year in the West End, over 7 million people have lived to tell the tale of one of the most chilling and successful theatre events ever staged.

The Woman In Black runs at the Lowry from 18 - 23rd Jan.
