The Woman in Black Reviews
Holly Stevens from Bath
I went to see this play for my GCSE course. I had absolutely no idea what to expect, but as soon as I entered the theatre I felt uncomfortable. It was interesting from beginning to end keeping you on the edge of your seat. There were some great laughs and some harsh screams. Truly enjoyable and recommendable. We even had fun teasing some friends after.

AMAZING MR KIPPS
The diverse characterization ability of Mr Kipps is astonishing. Superb timing of both the actors & technicians built tension, suspense & a delightful element of humour.The simplicity of the set called upon the actors to fully express their gift to the audience. A wonderful performance which honours the script

We were so impressed with Woman in Black we saw it a second time with our 12 year old son who is interested in amateur dramatics. He was blown away with the simplicity of it all - hardly any props - only 2 actors (and a rather scary actress!) - all of which performed brilliantly! The result is so effective and keeps you gripped from beginning to end. Scary, funny and above all a great night out.

THE OLD DAYS
i have just seen an interview on tv with robin hreford and it took me back to the old days. i worked in the bar at the theatre in the round when the women in black was first put on in that little bar seating 70 people. i just want to say it is one of the best plays i have ever seen and it lives with me still. if you only see one play in your life make it this one.

Going to see "The Woman in Black" with my 'As' Level Drama/Theatre Studies group was a scare-tastic experience. Act One had the audience preparing for the thrills and chills for Act Two. After Act One, we all secretly hoped that we would have been that little bit more scared and there were only a few occasions we had jumped/gasped, but come Act Two...let's just say we left the theatre quite shaken. The acting was very good and the actors had given a very inspirational performance... I never wish to see a rocking chair again, nor listen to a music box or whistle... Beware of THE WOMAN IN BLACK!
Matt from Worthing, West Sussex, England
Scariest thing i've ever seen firstly it's worst than the cinema cause it's right in front of you, making it even more scarier is being in the front row. Because some things happen to make you jump in the first row! Thw only reason i gave this a 4.5 is because it was so scary!
Lilly from England
NOT SCARY ENOUGH!
Having seen the film and the tv series, I was desperate to see the stage show. The seats and the view were first- rate but I found the play very unscary! However, my 18 year old daughter was terrified and couldn't sleep that night!
Katrina from Northern Ireland
DISAPPOINTINGLY NOT SCARY
I booked these tickets as the play was supposed to be really scary. I went with four other people and we all agreed it wasn't that scary at all. Not once did we jump or gasp, laugh might be a better way of how we felt about the play.

I FEEL DISGUSTED THAT THEY GET AWAY WITH SUCH RUBBISH
I saw The Women in Black last night at the fortune theatre. AND WHAT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. It was truely the most aweful production I have ever seen. I am susprised they can get away with such rubbish.... Two actors, whom play several characters, you even have to imagine a dog is on stage at one point. Its no more then a school play, this shouldnt be on at the west end. They havent invested in props and the set never changes. My advice: DO NOT GO !! you will be disapointed to say the least !! Oh and if a member of the production team is reading this.. I want a refund and i suggest you update the whole thing entirely.. Just aweful and still fuming considering they charge the same price for tickets as the standard decent west end show.
