Julian Forsyth is a stage and television actor who first played Arthur Kipps in The Woman in Black in 2010, before reprising the role at the Fortune Theatre in 2014.

Matthew Spencer returns to The Woman in Black as The Actor, having first played the role both at The Fortune Theatre and on tour.

Stephen Mallatratt’s adaptation of Susan Hill’s best-selling novel tells the story of a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black. He 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. The borders between make-believe and reality begin to blur and the flesh begins creep.

The Woman In Black is directed by Robin Herford, with designs by Michael Holt and lighting by Kevin Sleep.
