BRATTLEBORO- The Vermont Theatre Company presents “The Woman in Black” on January 18 through 20 and January 25 through 27.

“The Woman in Black,” adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from the suspense novel of the same name, is about a man who had a haunting experience in his younger years that has weighed heavily on his conscience. When he turns to a seasoned actor to show him how to tell his story, he not only finds his own talent as an actor, but he makes a chilling discovery. In Mallatratt’s words, “The intent of this show is to frighten - if it doesn’t, it’s nothing. The fear is not on a visual or visceral level, but an imaginative one. There are no gouts of blood nor any but the simplest of special effects.”

Actors involved in this project have a hands-on role making a haunting happen on stage. Jess Callahan Gelter is the director.

Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 pm, and Sunday performances at 3 pm, at the Hooker-Dunham Theater and Gallery.

The Hooker-Dunham Theater and Gallery is located at 139 Main Street. Admission is $12 general, $10 for seniors and students. For reservations call (802) 258-1344 or For more information visit
