Rumpus Theatre Company stage thriller The Tell-Tale Heart, based on Edgar Allan Poe’s story, at Nottingham’s Theatre Royal





Imagine you have committed a murder. Imagine someone heard the scream and the police come calling.

They’re friendly enough, but will your conscience betray you? And what is that noise in your ears that grows ever louder?

Is it the beating of your own guilty heart... or is it the heart of the man you’ve just killed?

The Tell-Tale Heart is coming to Nottingham.

These questions will be answered as Rumpus Theatre Company return to Nottingham’s Theatre Royal with a thrilling supernatural murder mystery.

Based on Edgar Allan Poe’s classic Victorian chiller of the same name, The Tell-Tale Heart will be on stage from Tuesday, April 2, to Thursday, April 4.

It follows Clarry Straven, who is sent out of London by his solicitor boss to make an inventory of the contents of a large house, and takes lodgings with Roderick Bounty, an apparently welcoming local landlord.
