The Woman in Black — Brisbane Arts Theatre

Gothic horror hits the stage.

Back in 2012, when Daniel Radcliffe was trying to shake a certain boy wizard from his system, he stepped into a different kind of supernatural thrills. His first post-Harry Potter role saw him take on The Woman in Black — a gothic horror tale that pitted him against a curse and a ghost. And yes, the latter did have quite the fondness for wearing dark clothing.

The film adapted the 1983 novella of the same name for the second time, but before The Woman in Black made it to the cinema, it first spooked out the theatre. Because hauntings often keep coming back, it's doing so again, with Brisbane Arts Theatre staging their very own version between June 10 and July 15.

If you don't like scary tales about sinister spirits seeking revenge for past ills, you might want to sit this one out. If you love them, then prepare to put your nerves to the test. We're betting that the Petrie Terrace venue will be at their unnerving best for the occasion — it's not every day you put on a show that ranks among West End's longest-running productions, after all.
