Nightnews Notes:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Woman_in_Black

'The stage play was first performed at the Stephen Joseph Theatre-In-The-Round in Scarborough, UK in 1987. It was very well received and moved to the Fortune Theatre in London's West End in 1989 where it still runs today, as well as currently being on a UK National Tour. The stage play is notable for having a very small cast, but it remains a popular and chilling theatre experience.'

'The Fortune Theatre in London where The Woman in Black has been running since 1989 is reputed to be haunted by a ghost - a woman in black - who began appearing shortly after a break-in at the Covent Garden theatre. She was witnessed being in the wings by all actors mid-performance, watching in silence.'

The leading question is, will the ghost have decided to up sticks and tour with the company!? Find out...
