THE RED ROOM

THE RED ROOM

PRESENTED BY  FRIENDS OF THE GRANARY

at Alderman Peel High School, Market Lane, NR23 1RB


An unnamed protagonist chooses to spend the night in an allegedly haunted room in Lorraine Castle. He intends to disprove the legend surrounding it. Despite vague warnings from the three infirm custodians who reside in the castle, the narrator ascends to the 'Red Room' to begin the night's vigil.

Initially confident, the narrator becomes increasingly uneasy in the room. He attempts to conquer his fear by lighting candles, but keeping the candles lit in the draughty room becomes an ongoing battle. Each time a candle is snuffed out, the narrator's fear increases. The caretakers find him in the morning unconscious after falling in a blind panic, feel vindicated when the narrator agrees the room is haunted. The room is haunted by fear itself.

Rumpus Theatre put their own stamp onthis short gothic story written by H.G.Wells.
