The Tell-Tale Heart

Author(s): John Goodrum based on a story by Edgar Allan Poe Company: Rumpus Theatre Company
David Martin (Roderick Bounty) and John Goodrum (Clarry Straven)

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.
