Rochelle’s opinion

“I first saw this show on a school trip in my mid-teens, and I can safely say I did not sleep that night. And probably those few nights following it too! The show does well to spook even the most hardened audience members. I love how they set the scene from the start – the theatre is pokey and dark, and the notorious Woman in Black is not listed as an actress in the programme! There’s jumps at every turn, but also a great story and acting to go with it.”

Best for booking ahead

The cheapest seats for The Woman in Black are priced at £22.50. These are found in the front and back rows of the upper circle and only on Tuesday-Thursday performances – if you’re looking at Friday or Saturday these go up by quite a jump to £28.50! The front row is classed as restricted view because of a bar in front of you. Legroom is also limited due to the wall at the front of the circle. However views are considered to be pretty good and quite close to the stage in this small theatre. If you think you might struggle with the legroom then go for the back row, but expect to be a little further away from the action. Don’t forget to check seat views with Seat Plan before booking!
