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?
Black Veil is a chilling play based on Charles Dickens’ classic Victorian short story.
The action takes place in and around London in the early 1800s. The chilling drama by John Goodrum takes the audience on a journey from the backstreets of Dickens’ London, the docks of the East End docks and finally to a thrilling climax.
It is brought to Buxton Opera House by Derbyshire-based Rumpus Theatre Company from Thursday, March 12-Saturday, March 14, before continuing its nationwide tour.
