Stephen Malatratt Based on the novel by Susan Hill. Drama/Thriller Characters: 2 male, 1 extra Bare stage 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. A classic of the genre. "A real theatrical spine chiller. . . . A truly nerve shredding experience."- The Daily Mail "Provides a pleasurable ripple of fear down one's spine and an uncomfortable lurch in the pit of one's stomach."-Time Out New York "A brilliantly effective spine chiller.... The narrative is gripping."- The Guardian . "A gripping tale, grippingly told."- The Financial Times
