Two Women. One Locked Room. One Bottle of Poison.

By Published September 13, 2017

ENCAUSTIC Theatre productions are heading to Middlesbrough Theatre with The Nightmare Room…a wicked contemporary thriller by John Goodrum.

This deliciously dark thriller from a tale by the master of terror and mystery, Arthur Conan Doyle - with twists and turns worthy of an Agatha Christie whodunit - weaves its way through a sinister labyrinth of marital infidelity and revenge that will haunt your mind forever.

When Helen regains consciousness, she finds herself bound and blindfolded in a locked room.

Her captor, best friend Catherine, challenges her to a deadly game of Russian roulette to decide which of them will win the handsome film star they both desire.

But the game - like the room - is far from what it seems … are they alone in the room … or is there someone watching?

The Nightmare Room comes from the pen of John Goodrum whose adaptations for Rumpus Theatre - including The Ghost Ship, The Haunted Doll’s House and The Ripper Files – have consistently thrilled Middlesbrough audiences in recent years.

The Nightmare Room opens at Middlesbrough Theatre on Wednesday, September 20 and runs until Friday, September 22.

Tickets cost £14/£12 concessions and only £10 for the Friday matinee.

Tickets are available from the box office on 01642 81 51 81 or visit
