The Black Veil


A chilling play based on Charles Dickens’ classic Victorian thriller

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.
