Before The Curtain Goes Up: The Woman in Black

David C Jones speaks with Bernard Cuffling and Aidan Wright to find out more about this atmospheric thriller to take to the Jericho Arts Centre stage from February 18 through March 5.

CLASSical ACT Collective and Famous Artists Limited present London’s second-longest-running play, The Woman in Black, at the Jericho Arts Centre.

In The Woman in Black, aging solicitor Arthur Kipps engages a young actor to bring his
eerie experiences at Eel Marsh House to life. Neither he nor his dramatic collaborator expects the haunting to move into the theatre and curse them both. As ghostly sounds swirl, the audience will struggle to trust their eyes as this show conjures the very essence of “The Woman” herself.

“With Vancouver favourite Bernard Cuffling directing and starring, The Woman in Black is more than just a play, it’s an experience … and one that attendees won’t soon forget.”

An international hit, more than 10 million people have seen this haunting play in the West End of London alone. And now, with the London show soon closing, Vancouver will be the only production on Earth for audiences to get a taste of this atmospheric thriller.

In this edition of Before The Curtain Goes Up, Vancouver Presents contributor David C Jones speaks with the show’s director and actor, Bernard Cuffling and actor Aidan Wright to find out more.

The Woman in Black plays at the Jericho Arts Centre (1675 Discovery St, Vancouver) from February 18 through March 5. Visit for tickets and information.
