Rumpus Theatre Company presents
Tue 3 – Sat 7 March

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

Rumpus Theatre Company will be back in Windsor this March with a chilling play by John Goodrum 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!

Rumpus uses all its usual “excellent acting, sound and lighting” ( in this sinister, suspenseful thriller to take the audience on a dark and intriguing journey from the backstreets of Dickens’ London to the East End docks to an electrifying climax in a watermill on the outskirts of the city.

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” (

The Black Veil comes to Theatre Royal Windsor from Tue 3 – Sat 7 March with performances each evening at 8pm, a Thursday matinee at 2.30pm and a Saturday matinee at 4.45pm. To book, call box office on 01753 853888 or visit
