An acclaimed production of Susan Hill’s much-loved horror novel The Woman In Black is coming to Brighton.

The production, which has been a mainstay of the West End since 1989, will be at the Theatre Royal in Brighton in the new year.

Adapted from Susan Hill’s best-selling novel, the show will play in the city for five days as part of a UK tour.

Malcolm James and Mark Hawkins are set to reprise their roles as Arthur Kipps and The Actor respectively.

James has featured in multiple TV shows including EastEnders, Coronation Street and The Bill, while Hawkins has a host of theatrical credits including The Railway Children and Julius Caesar.


Both have previously taken up the roles in the UK tour of the production.

The Woman In Black has played to more than seven million people.

The show, first performed at a pub in Scarborough in 1987, celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2022.

The Woman In Black will be at the Theatre Royal from Tuesday, February 27, to Saturday, March 2, 2024.
