The Woman In Black, Theatre Review. Playhouse Theatre, Liverpool.

Liverpool Sound and Vision Rating * * * *

Cast: David Acton, Matthew Spencer.

A good ghost story never flinches in the face of modern day scepticism, if anything it can grow with stature, it can take on almost a life of its own, of becoming a haunting reminder of the world in between realities that shape and bend our perceptions of what is clear and unsullied and what is blurred, distorted and afraid to step out of the shadows. A good ghost story is one which you can feel the person next to you wanting to jump out of their skin, their creeping flesh tingle with nervousness and anticipation; there are many that have this effect but few capture the pure sense of emotion that is inherent as The Woman In Black.

The Playhouse has put on some very fine pieces of theatre so far this year and with some truly remarkable performances including Bob Golding’s superb interpretation of national treasure Eric Morecambe and the team behind the season’s opener “Ghost Stories”. To finish the season in a similar fashion they have commissioned the wonderful and spine tingling The Woman in Black.
