The iconic thriller The Woman in Black returns to Dubai’s Madinat Theatre this September.

The play, which is celebrating its 27th year in London’s West End, will run in Dubai from September 26 to October 2.

The Woman in Black is based on Susan Hill’s bestselling novel of the same name, and adapted for stage by Stephen Mallatratt.

The chilling story centres around a lawyer obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by a spectre. He engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul. It begins innocently enough, but as they reach further into his darkest memories the borders between make believe and reality begin to blur.

Tickets to the show, held at varying times, begin at Dh180.
