The Northern Illinois University Annuitants Association is taking reservations for its Nov. 24 trip to Chicago is to see the matinée of “The Woman in Black.” The reservation deadline is Sept. 17.
Susan Hill’s gothic ghost story, adapted for the stage by Stephen Mallatratt, is set in an isolated windswept mansion with tragic secrets hidden behind its shuttered windows. There, a young lawyer encounters horrific visions in the house set amidst the eerie marshes and howling winds of England’s forbidding Northeast Coast. With just two actors, The “Woman in Black” offers audiences unremitting drama and sheer theatricality as they are transported into a chilling and ghostly world.
The group will leave DeKalb at 8:30 a.m. to attend the 2:30 p.m. performance at The Royal George Theatre, with free time for lunch at Water Tower Place with a box dinner for the trip back to DeKalb. Estimated departure time from Chicago is 5 p.m. Reserved seats are orchestra seats.
