The Black Veil

Buxton Opera Housebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

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!?
