Directed by the theatre’s artistic director Thom Southerland, the musical stars Australian actress Anna O’Byrne in the role of Laura Fairlie, alongside Chris Peluso (Sir Percival Glyde), Carolyn Maitland (Marian Halcombe), Ashley Stillburn (Walter Hartright), Greg Castiglioni (Count Fosco) and Sophie Reeves (Anne Catherick).
The musical, which is based on the 19th century novel of the same name by Wilkie Collins, is about Walter Hartright, who is travelling to Limmeridge House to take up a position as drawing master to Laura Fairlie and her half sister, Marian. On his way, a woman crosses his path. Dressed all in white, she is fleeing someone, but she is desperate to tell him a haunting secret.
The Woman in White Tickets are available now.
