Freely adapted from Wilkie Collins’s sensational Victorian thriller, The Woman in White tells the story of a dashing young man, employed as the art tutor to two devoted sisters, who is stranded at a remote railway station. Out of the darkness looms a woman, a mysterious figure dressed in white, desperate to share a chilling secret. He and the sisters soon find themselves trapped in a web of betrayal and greed, the victims of a seemingly flawless crime. Together they will need all their resourcefulness and courage to outwit a hugely charismatic and ingenious villain.
The production’s world premiere in London on 15th September of last year earned it some of the strongest reviews in the extraordinary careers of composer Lloyd Webber and director Nunn. The Daily Mail hailed it as “gripping and hypnotic.” “Andrew Lloyd Webber’s best score in years,” wrote the Guardian, while The Daily Express called it, “a soaring, lyrical, romantic drama whose every scene lends itself as if by magic to precisely the kind of music that Lloyd Webber writes best.”
The Woman in White is produced by Boyett Ostar Productions, Nederlander Presentations Inc., Sonia Friedman Productions Ltd. And The Really Useful Theatre Company Ltd.
