Spoiler[edit]

Should it be marked that the article contains potential spoilers for those who have not read the novel yet?\

Yes, good point! fancy a cup of tea?

I think that there should be a separate page for the theatre production and yes I would like a cup of tea. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.11.215.199 (talk) 13:26, 5 August 2008 (UTC)

No, there shouldn't be a spoiler warning; see WP:SW. You should expect to find spoilers in a Wikipedia article, as the topic should be covered in enough depth to include a full synopsis of the plot. ▫ Urbane Legend chinwag 00:12, 4 February 2010 (UTC)


YES!!! I would love a seperate page dedicated for the stage play. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.151.106.178 (talk) 13:47, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

I think it is very important to recognise that the stage version of Woman In Black has been going for 20 years or so and deserves a page of its own. Actually, really desperate for a cup of tea, so might go and make one. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.145.78.46 (talk) 20:36, 24 January 2010 (UTC)


You would be very surprised how many students revise using Wikipedia as a main source... —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.128.226.138 (talk) 11:25, 12 June 2008 (UTC)


Is there any chance that we could create a page about “the woman in black” the play? I think that this article is of particular importance as it is studied all over the country by students taking GCSE drama. Therefore it would be very helpful for them whilst studying if the could have a resource like a page on wikipieda.

Re: I'm surprised there isn't a page about the play; now in its nineteenth year, it's a West End institution. A wikipedia page would be good just to get an idea (I haven't seen the show yet but am trying to gather a bit of info for web content). To think GCSE students would use wikipedia for study is a bit silly though. You might as well do research in a bloody chatroom. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.68.60.114 (talk) 14:33, 22 May 2008 (UTC)

Let me know what you think —Preceding unsigned comment added by Lizhi Anne (talkcontribs) 15:23, 24 April 2008 (UTC)

I'd agree a split for the play would be useful. Sjoram (talk) 16:31, 18 July 2008 (UTC)

Yeah there really should be a page it could mean that more information could be given about the book. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Wrbsy (talkcontribs) 16:19, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

I always use wikipedia as a main source for research, and yes I want a cuppa - 2 sugars lots of milk PG tips thankyouuu —Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.106.31.0 (talk) 19:12, 10 May 2009 (UTC)

The Woman in Black (play)[edit]

I warn you students now, I wouldn't use Wikipedia as a source for coursework. Everyone automatically heads for Wikipedia, making certain elements of their essays a little too similar. From personal experience, examiners prefer originality. But yes, as an avid theatre go-er, I think that there needs to be a seperate article for the play. It's been running for 20 years, and is an excellent piece of theatre. As a well established play in the West End, it does deserve an article. Please? Sophiaaa.x (talk) 20:13, 1 March 2009 (UTC) Of course there should be a page on the play, they have one for the film, there isn't enough information here on a play that has been running for years. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.157.211.242 (talk) 17:36, 6 January 2010 (UTC)

Year of book wrong???

In all of the information I can find on this book, it was published in 1942 by Susan Hill. Where does the 1980s date come from? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 199.59.174.46 (talk) 20:57, 27 January 2012 (UTC)

Edit request on 29 January 2012[edit]

This page is incorrect. Daniel Radcliffe is not in the book, not does he 'avada kedavra' anyone to hell. Please remove that addition.
