Photo Flash: Inside Rehearsal For THE TELL-TALE HEART at the National Theatre

A young playwright rents an attic flat in Brighton, hoping it will break the writer's block that's preventing her from following up on her wildly successful debut. Whilst there, she forms a relationship with her landlady, a lonely young woman with a life-altering condition.

But pressure mounts on the writer, and her relationship with the landlady becomes ever-more suffocating. The Tell-Tale Heart is a twisted, graphic and darkly-comic treat.

Renowned for his ground-breaking work, Anthony Neilson (The Prudes, Unreachable, The Wonderful World of Dissocia) makes his NT debut with this contemporary reimagining of Edgar Allan Poe's classic tale of a haunted conscience. Cast includes David Carlyle, Imogen Doel and Tamara Lawrance.

Directed by Anthony Neilson, design by Francis O'Connor, lighting design by Chahine Yavrayan and music and sound by Nick Powell.
