Stephen Mallatratt's play is based on a short horror novella by Susan Hill published in 1983. The play deals with an Edwardian-era lawyer hiring an actor to help him recount his experience of visiting an elderly recluse one night, and coming in contact with a woman's ghost. Dressed in all black to mourn the accidental death of her infant, the woman in black haunts her old neighborhood and terrifies locals who fear her phantom presence, as anyone who sees her dies. The lawyer and actor later reenact the event's happenings for his guests. This atmospheric, spooky story was recently made into a film by Hammer film productions starring Daniel Radcliffe, and still holds up as a chilling, well-crafted ghost story even today.
