The Woman In Black Play by Company of Fools in Hailey

Prepare yourself for a night of ghoulish theater that just might scare you out of your wits! The acclaimed play The Woman in Black combines the power and intensity of live theater with the eerie and dark qualities inspired by the world of film noir cinema.

This play gives audiences an evening of unremitting, spine-tingling drama as they are transported into a terrifying world of specters. Each performance will be limited to 48 audience members, as the action takes place throughout the theater while the audience is seated on the stage.

Based on Susan Hill's 1983 horror fiction novel about a menacing ghost that haunts a small English town, The Woman in Black was adapted for the stage by Stephen Malatratt. First performed in the UK in 1987, more than 7 million people have flocked to experience one of the most exciting, gripping and successful theater events ever staged.

John Glenn will direct Company of Fools' production, which features Scott Creighton and Neil Brookshire. The Woman in Black began its run on October 17 and will continue until November 3 at the Liberty Theatre in Hailey... but it will haunt you long after the lights come up!

Storyline of The Woman In Black

The story begins with a lawyer obsessed over a curse he believes was cast over him and his family by the specter of a 'Woman in Black'. He engages a young actor to help him tell his story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It begins innocently enough, but as they reach further into his darkest memories, they find themselves caught up in a world of eerie marshes and moaning winds. The borders between make-believe and reality begin to blur in ways that make the flesh creep.
