The Black Veil

Thursday 12th – Saturday 14th March 2020

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!?
