Local theater, The Empty Space, presented a performance of “The Woman in Black” to a packed house on Sept. 23.

The two-hour long show featured Paul Sosa and Daniel Korth playing the two leading roles of the lawyer and the actor.

The identities of the actresses who played the title character were intentionally left off of the playbill to keep a sense of mystery in regards to the ghostly woman in black.

“The Woman in Black” chronicles the story of a lawyer, played by Sosa, who is convinced that his family is being plagued by the spirit of the woman in black. He enlists the help of an actor, played by Korth, to help tell his tale.

Korth mentioned that he loved how dark and eerie the play was and that even after two months of preparation, he still felt a sense of surprise when the woman in black would appear.

“I legitimately don’t know when the woman in black is coming out. It freaks me out and scares me,” Korth said after the show.

“The Woman in Black” is based on a novel by Susan Hill. It was adapted into a stage play by Stephen Malatratt and was one of the longest-running and most popular shows in London’s West End.

The Empty Space’s production was directed by Michelle Guerrero and ran for two weekends, from Sept. 15-23.
