The Woman In Black is coming back to Dubai

The world’s scariest play returns to Madinat Theatre in September

ART & CULTURE

One of the world’s most successful plays, The Woman in Black, is due to return to Dubai for a limited run this September.

From Tuesday September 26 until Monday October 2, the legendary thriller-horror play is returning to the Madinat Theatre, Madinat Jumeirah.

There will be nightly shows plus four matinee performances of the chilling production, which has been internationally acclaimed as one of the most effective live shows in the world.

Now in its 27th year in London’s West End, the production returns to Dubai following sell-out runs in 2009, 2012 and 2015, and will feature cast members from the London show.

It tells the story of an old man with a dark history, who becomes obsessed with the belief that he has been cursed by the titular character, an ethereal, spectral character dubbed The Woman in Black. He convinces a sceptical young actor to tell his story, but as the pair delve into the memories of the show’s protagonist, the boundaries between reality and fantasy begin to blur and The Woman In Black’s motives are revealed.

Don’t miss the return of one of this thrilling and engaging play.

From Dhs180. Tue Sep 26 -Mon Oct 2. Madinat Theatre, Madinat Jumeirah, Umm Suqeim, www.seewomaninblack.com
