Combining the classic tales of Edgar Allan Poe with the buried Victorian origins of Battersea Old Town Hall, The Masque Of The Red Death lured audiences into a macabre world of mystery and the supernatural.

Exploring some of Poe’s most disturbing themes and obsessions and populated by a large cast of bizarre characters, The Masque Of The Red Death played for a 7-month sold out run and was seen by over 40,000 people.

Without question the most extraordinary dramatic event you will find in any British theatre.

Reviews

Mind glowingly imaginative.

– Paul Taylor, The Independent

This extraordinary performance confirms Punchdrunk’s reputation as one of the most exciting and boundary breaking ensembles in contemporary theatre. It’s totally disorientating at first but if one surrenders to the experience, the effect of The Masque Of The Red Death is transformative.
