Based on Wilkie Collins' much-loved classic novel - widely recognised as the first mystery thriller - 'The Woman in White' is a tale of passion, intrigue and deception, taking us on a chilling ride down the shadowy paths and corridors of English country houses and ultimately into the depths of the Victorian madhouse. After a haunting encounter on Hampstead Heath with a woman who has escaped from an asylum, Walter Hartright (Ben Hardy) finds himself drawn into a mysterious and disturbing world. He leaves London to take a job in the wilds of Cumbria, teaching art to the spirited Marian Halcombe (Jessie Buckley) and the beautiful Laura Fairlie (Olivia Vinall). With Laura betrothed to the dangerous Sir Percival Glyde (Dougray Scott), Walter and the sisters become embroiled in a tale of romance, danger and suspense - all inexplicably connected to the ghostly woman from the heath, the Woman in White. Retaining the mysterious atmosphere that has captured the imaginations of the book's readers for over 150 years, 'The Woman in White' still has as much to say today as it did in 1859 about the power relationships between men and women. This bold new adaptation brings an exhilarating and modern take to the novel's striking female characters, charismatic formidable villains and gripping plot, with all its twists and turns.
