The Woman In WhiteFreely adapted from Wilkie Collins’s racy Victorian thriller, The Woman In White tells the story of a dashing young man, employed as the art tutor to two devoted sisters, is stranded at a remote railway cutting. Out of the darkness looms a woman, a mysterious figure dressed in white, desperate to share a chilling secret.

This new musical has been adapted for the stage by Charlotte Jones, whose award-winning plays include Humble Boy, with lyrics by David Zippel, whose credits include City of Angels and the Disney classics Mulan and Hercules. Andrew Lloyd Webber has composed the captivating and romantic score. Internationally renowned director Trevor Nunn, responsible for, amongst others, Cats, Starlight Express, Les Misérables and, most recently, Anything Goes, directs the production.
