A lawyer hires an actor to tutor him in recounting to family and friends a story that has long troubled him concerning events that transpired when he attended the funeral of an elderly recluse. There he caught sight of the Woman in Black, the mere mention of whom terrifies those who know about her.

Tickets can be purchased by cash, check, charge or Brown Paper Tickets.
