WildClaw Theatre Company proudly presents The Woman In Black. Tickets are now available starting at $25. Be sure to purchase your tickets early! The Woman In Black is an 18+ event.

Chicago’s premiere horror theater begins their 2017 season by bringing the award-winning stage play based on Susan Hill’s classic 1983 novel to Chicago. In this gothic spine-tingler, a solicitor hires an actor to tutor him in recounting to family and friends a story that has long troubled him. It concerns events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse twenty years ago. There he caught sight of a woman in black, the mere mention of whom terrifies the locals, for she is a specter who haunts the neighborhood. Together, the two men recreate the events of that dark and stormy night. WildClaw is proud to present this true horror theater classic with the distinction of being the longest running non-musical in London’s famous West End.
