Rumpus Theatre Company presents Edgar Allan Poe's terrifying classic

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" (

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

Rumpus … “guarantees to set your heart racing” (
