The Woman In White
"This is the story of what a Woman's patience can endure and what a Man's resolution can achieve"
Ian Dickens Productions presents a new adaptation of this classic Victorian thriller which has never been out of print since its first publication in 1860 with a fantastic cast including Colin Baker (the sixth incarnation of the universally loved Doctor in Doctor Who, Peter Amory (the evil Chris Tate in Emmerdale) and and Grange Hill’s Karen Ford who played the art teacher ‘Miss Booth’ for seven years.
Walter Hartright, a handsome art teacher, is assailed by The Woman in White on a London road at midnight where she pleads with him for his help to prevent her from being taken to an asylum. She disappears just as suddenly as she appears, but this first unsettling encounter is the beginning of a long journey which takes Walter to the darkest continents of his heart. Love, suspense and danger all combine to create this haunting mystery of mistaken identities and stolen fortunes, heroism, high drama and volatile passions.
Wilkie Collins was a contemporary and friend of Charles Dickens but outsold him in London and New York in 1860 with his first ever detective novel, "The Woman in White". Adapted now into a stage drama, this fast-paced story set in Victorian England promises to captivate and delight the modern audience.
