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"(whatsgoodtodo.co.uk)

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

Rumpus … “guarantees to set your heart racing” (remotegoat.co.uk)
