Newly-qualified doctor Stephen Ruggles has just arrived home on a stormy winter’s evening and is warming himself by the fire. A mysteriously-veiled elderly woman arrives at his door and begs him to visit a nameless patient at daybreak the following morning. Against his better judgement, Ruggles agrees, only to find himself embroiled in a web of lies and deceit that ends in death... but for whom?

Packed full of atmosphere and shocks, The Black Veil is “a chilling thriller [that] leads the audience down several blind alleys before revealing all with a clever double twist... nothing is as it seems” (The Argus).
