The Woman In Black theatre review by Katey Thompson, April 2017.
Stephen Mallatratt‘s play The Woman In Black is an adaptation of the novel of Susan Hill of the same name. It is a tense thriller with a subtle chill running through it. The director Robin Hereford has put together a play that manages to strike the right balance of thrill and suspense, but perhaps does not reach its full ethereal potential.
This play features a highly professional performance by both actors, who both filled the stage, and the auditorium by their presence. Well done David Acton and Matthew Spencer. The dark tension was maintained throughout the performance until the very end. The transition from one character to another by Acton was very skillful and believable
