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” (

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