The Woman in Black at the Echo Theatre: This Halloween tradition is back! Set in the windswept reaches of the salt marshes beyond Nine Lives Causeway, in the proud and solitary Eel Marsh House. Junior solicitor, Arthur Kipps, is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, the house's sole inhabitant, unaware of the tragic secrets which lie hidden behind the shuttered windows. It is not until he glimpses a wasted young women dressed all in black at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold. This feeling is deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black and her terrible purpose.
