la-dama-de-negroBetween the realms of reality and fiction, sanity and terror, and truth and doubt lies the altered, terrified mind of young Arthur Kipps. In efforts to exorcise a horrible childhood memory, Arthur must act out his fears in a theatre with the help of skeptic director, John Morris. British novelist Susan Hill’s The Lady in Black, adapted as a play, takes to the stage celebrating 20 continuous years since the production first appeared in Mexico City. Set in 20th Century English society, this “theatre within a theatre” performance leaves audiences befuddled whether the mysterious Madame Noir was a real figure, a sinister shadow or a phantom. The only real fear is being too serious for dark humor when La Dama is around.
