MKFM REVIEW: The Woman in Black at Milton Keynes Theatre

    We were invited to see The Woman in Black at Milton Keynes Theatre and here is our review…

    As a fan of supernatural horror movies, in particular The Woman in Black, I was really excited to see the legendary story at Milton Keynes Theatre.

    Obsessed with a curse that he believes has been cast over him and his family by the spectre of a Woman in Black, Arthur Kipps engages a sceptical young actor to help him tell his terrifying story and exorcise the fear that grips his soul.

    Malcolm James, who plays Kipps, captures the characters genuine fear perfectly. You can see and feel the horror in the room as his story is portrayed by ‘the actor’ Mark Hawkins.

    Despite a steady start, the production keeps you on the edge of your seat - unsure as to when you will see The Woman in Black again, and where she could appear. Kipps and the actor start you off with some light humour to settle you in, but the eerie lighting and creepy sound effects eventually catch up creating a dark yet thrilling atmosphere.

    With simple staging and a small cast, we were left in awe of how it manages to create such a terrifying illusion. 

    If you are a fan of thrillers, illusions and a few jumps, The Woman in Black is definitely a must-see for you!
