ACT’s Strand Theater to Stage “The Woman in Black”

The original London Production of “The Woman in Black” makes its San Francisco Bay Area premiere December 15, 2021 through January 16, 2022 at The Strand Theater.

Over 8 million people have lived to tell the tale of one of the most successful—and terrifying—theatre events ever staged.

And now it’s coming to spook San Francisco Bay Area audiences this holiday season with all the stage thrills that have led audiences across the globe to shriek in fear for over 30 years!

Hailed as “a nerve-shredding experience” (Daily Mail) and “ingenious” (The New York Times), Dame Susan Hill’s gothic ghost story—adapted for the stage by Stephen Mallatratt and directed by Robin Herford—is set in an isolated windswept mansion with tragic secrets hidden behind its shuttered windows.

There, a young lawyer encounters horrific visions in the house set amidst the eerie marshes and howling winds of England’s forbidding Northeast Coast.
