9th-13th November 2010, New Wimbledon Studio Theatre, Directed by Kristen McGorry


A group of strangers are sent an intriguing, blood-red invitation with the simple words "come and play". Arriving at the specified location they find the drinks flowing and their host , the enigmatic Mr Reece, convivial. However the party atmosphere soon turns sour when the true reason for the gathering emerges. One by one Reece forces his guests to relive the terrible secrets that have been plaguing them, taking them to the edge of madness. But are there supernatural or human forces at work?



Perfect for a dark and stormy night in November, The Masque of the Red Death is a deliciously macabre portmanteau horror based on the short stories of Edgar Allan Poe. Darkly comic and full of frights it promises to keep you on the edge of your seat until the twisted and terrifying end.

Do you want to come and play?
