MY PAST PRODUCTIONS
THE WOMAN IN BLACK
The most haunting and terrifying thriller ever seen on stage is coming to Montecasino from 22 November to 10 January.
Starring Eckard Rabe (Egoli) and Anton Luitingh (CATS, Beauty and the Beast, JC Superstar) and directed by Moira Blumenthal, Pieter Toerien presents The Woman in Black.
"One of the most brilliantly effective spine-chillers you will ever see!" - Daily Telegraph.
Proud and solitary, Eel Marsh House surveys the windswept reaches of the salt marshes beyond Nine Lives Causeway. Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, the house's sole inhabitant, unaware of the tragic secrets which lie hidden behind the shuttered windows. It is not until he glimpses a wasted young woman, dressed all in black, at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, a feeling deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black - and her terrible purpose. Years later, as an old man, he recounts his experiences to an actor in a desperate attempt to exorcise the ghosts of the past. The play unfolds around the conversations of these two characters as they act out the solicitor's experiences on Eel Marsh all those years ago.
