West End thriller The Woman in Black coming to the Lichfield Garrick

Theatrical thriller The Woman in Black will enjoy a five-day run at the Lichfield Garrick later this year.

The show, which has enjoyed a record-breaking run in London’s West End, will visit the city from September 13 to 17 as part of a nationwide tour.

A spokesperson said: “This gripping production, directed by Robin Herford, is a brilliantly successful study in atmosphere, illusion and controlled horror.

“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 then, as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds.”

Tickets can be booked online or by calling the box office on 01543 412121.
