Occurs every Saturday, Friday, Sunday
The Lakewood Playhouse is proud to present the FOURTH SHOW of our 74th SEASON of PLAYS—Stephen Mallatratt's adaptation of Susan Hill's Terrifying Ghost Story "THE WOMAN IN BLACK," the Second Longest Running Show in London’s West End behind Agatha Christie's THE MOUSTRAP. The Play will be performed on Fridays, Saturdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 2:00pm. Performances will be February 22nd – March 17th, with Special Showings at 8:00pm on Thursday, February 28th (Pay What You Can Night) and 8:00pm on Thursday, March 7th ("Pay What You Can" Actor's Benefit). Our Ticket Prices are $24.00 (General Admission), $21.00 (Senior/Military) and $18.00 (Students/Educators).
This is a ghost story that will have you checking the shadows when you return home and a chilling tale that will have you telling yourself over and over: It's only a play...it's only a play. Featuring two actors that will carry the tale and who will mesmerize you in their chameleon-like ability to leap from one character to another: Mr. DYLAN TWINER as The Actor (Last Season's THE FARNSWORTH INVENTION ) and introducing Mr. NATHAN RICE as Arthur Kipps.
This show will feature the Lakewood Playhouse debut of Seattle director BEAU PRICHARD.
Presented with views from all sides, in the Lakewood Playhouse’s unique "in the round" seating, this production of “THE WOMAN IN BLACK" will help you feel like as if you are "inside" the show…and, at times, lost in its supernatural dreamworld.
ABOUT THE SHOW: "A Mystery guaranteed to raise the hairs on your neck and give you scares that will follow you home." The framework of this spine tingler is unusual: a lawyer hires an actor to tutor him in recounting to family and friends a story that has long troubled him concerning events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse. There he caught sight of the woman in black, the mere mention of whom terrifies the locals, for she is a specter who haunts the neighborhood where her illegitimate child was accidentally killed. Anyone who sees her dies! The lawyer has invited some friends to watch as he and the actor recreate the events of that dark and stormy night.
There is NOTHING that can prepare you for THE WOMAN IN BLACK.
