Adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from the 1983 gothic novel by Susan Hill, it is celebrating 25 years in the West End – the second-longest running non-musical play in the West End after The Mousetrap.

The story is related by solicitor Arthur Kipps who recalls his experiences when he was summoned on business to a small town on the north east coast, where he experiences a series of chilling events related to the apparition of a woman who appears to herald the death of children.

The play’s popularity has also led to a range of adaptations for radio, television and film, including the 2012 film starring Daniel Radcliffe.

It runs from Monday to Saturday.
