Rumpus Theatre Company presents for its large-scale Autumn 2019 / Spring 2020 tour

A chilling play based on

Charles Dickens’ classic Victorian thriller

The Black Veil

The Black Veil - Artwork

Newly-qualified doctor Stephen Ruggles has just arrived home on a stormy winter’s evening
and is warming himself by the fire. A mysteriously-veiled elderly woman arrives
at his door and begs him to visit a nameless patient at daybreak the following morning.
Against his better judgement, Ruggles agrees, only to find himself embroiled in …

… a web of lies and deceit that ends in death … but for whom!

Packed full of atmosphere and shocks, THE BLACK VEIL is...

a chilling thriller [that] leads the audience down several blind alleys
before revealing all with a clever double twist … nothing is as it seems
” (theargus.co.uk)


eerie, nightmarish, chillingly spooky … a sure-fire winner” (Derbyshire Times)

Rumpus Theatre Company presents

Edgar Allan Poe's terrifying classic

The Masque of the Red Death

The Masque of the Red Death - Artwork

Prince Prospero and a handful of his nobility shut themselves away in a heavily fortified castle,
to escape the terrible plague that is sweeping their land … known as the Red Death,
it kills everyone and everything in its path. Disdainfully indifferent to the sufferings of his people,
the Prince throws a lavish ball, but as the masque reaches its orgiastic climax and the
clock chimes midnight, a mysterious, uninvited guest is found in their midst

… a guest that wreaks a terrifying revenge!

Last Autumn's THE DEVIL'S BRIDE was …

wonderfully creepy … up to [Rumpus’s] usual high standards” (Eastern Daily Press)

while “THE RED ROOM” was …

captivating” (British Theatre Guide)

and recommended …

to anyone who enjoys sitting on the edge of their seat” (whatsgoodtodo.co.uk)

… THE MASQUE OF THE RED DEATH promises much much more of the same …

Rumpus … “guarantees to set your heart racing” ” (remotegoat.co.uk)
