Thrilling supernatural murder mystery THE TELL-TALE HEART comes to Theatre Royal Nottingham 2-4 April

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!

When Clarry Straven is sent out of London by his solicitor boss to make an inventory of the contents of a large house, he takes lodgings with Roderick Bounty, an apparently welcoming local landlord. But something about his host unsettles him, stretching Clarry’s already delicate nerves to breaking-point. The horrific consequences change Clarry’s life forever.

Absolutely brilliant!” “Gripping and entertaining” “A must watch for horror fans!” “If it’s coming your way get a ticket” (audience Facebook reviews)

Something to make [the audience’s] blood run cold … I jumped out of my seat” (British Theatre Guide)
