A new stage adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe’s classic ghost story, The Pit And The Pendulum.

When William Trevelyan sets out to rescue his young wife from the clutches of the wicked and lascivious Hellfire Club, he little expects to find himself their captive, tortured by the nightmare of a living grave, the nameless dread of a fathomless pit and the inevitability of the swinging pendulum with its razor-sharp blade.
