Rumpus Theatre Company presents:
A chilling play based on Charles Dickens’ classic Victorian thriller ‘The Black Veil’.
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
