The play opens in an old, empty theatre. Arthur Kipps enters and begins reading from a manuscript he has written. Then an actor enters that has been hired to help Kipps with his story. The Actor gives Kipps some pointers and then begins to read the play as if he were Kipps and makes Kipps read the other characters of the play.
In the story, Kipps has been placed in charge of the estate of a Miss Drablow. He must travel to the town she is from to get her affairs totally in order. When he arrives, he realizes people are very hesitant to speak of Miss Drablow and her estate. Kipps is the only man to attend Drablow’s funeral, where he sees something quite strange, a woman in black standing a distance away from him. He finds this to be odd, but doesn’t think much of it.
Kipps then travels to the Drablow home. He’s very ill at ease, but dismisses these feelings. He does not believe in the paranormal and refuses to think anything strange is happening. The Woman in Black will make Kipps a believer. As this thriller unfolds, the audience is taken on an emotional and scary journey with Kipps that will leave them guessing what’s going to happen next.
