About the event

A spine-chilling new play based on the classic ghost story by H G Wells.

 Everyone warned against it, but stubbornness is a curious thing … one night, entirely alone in an apparently haunted room. It’s a familiar scenario, but the outcome is totally unexpected … and utterly terrifying!

Come and see this mesmerizing new take on H G Wells’ classic ghost story THE RED ROOM to find out …

… and enter the room … if you dare!

"The Red Room promises much more of the same. fantastic ... the audience jumped out of their skin.” The Public Reviews on The Haunted Bride

"Rumpus...guarantees to set your heart racing...highly recommended!”

2015’s The Haunted Dolls’ House was "truly chilling … excellent' The Reviews Hub

While Captain Murderer in 2014 was "the most entertaining horror to hit the stage for some time … with excellent acting, sound and lighting placed for the ultimate build in tension, great timing and a tale so macabre that one may find oneself glancing repeatedly over one's shoulder … delightfully despicable and fantastic fun"

Last Autumn’s tour of H P Lovecraft’s The Haunting of Exham Priory was hugely popular with audiences, with social media comments such as "Fantastic evening being spellbound by the spine-tingling new @RumpusTheatreCo ‘The Haunting of Exham Priory’. Stunning"

 and "Thank you for a great night of suspense and creepiness … thoroughly enjoyed it … can’t wait to see what you do next year" …
