Wildly hysterical and absolutely terrifying, we shrieked, laughed...and peed a little too.

It was a full house for the press preview of The Woman in Black: A Ghost Play in a Pub, based on Susan Hill’s 1983 gothic novel, at the McKittrick Hotel. Starring David Action and Ben Porter, the performance successfully delivered a hyperreal version of make-believe and comedic ghost storytelling that kept showgoers on the edge of their seats. The performance is an all-encompassing display of highs and lows, where theatre meets cinema and the results were impressionable amongst the intimate crowd.

With larger than life talent and minimal props, the amplified use of effects took the performance to a different and unique level of immersive intensity. Blood-curdling screams and carriages crashing blared over the speakers, while intricate lighting projections and fog-machines established lifelike expression of setting and mood. Which, mind you, made anticipation for the next distressing moment for the protagonist, equally, if not more, distressing for the audience.

Be prepared to laugh, jump and scream. Buckle up—it’s a wild ride! Tickets are available for purchase here.
