AN immersive and gothic theatre production is set to perform by Clacton's seafront this month. 

The Masque of the Red Death is a play adaptation of Edgar Allen Poe's short story of the same name, one that follows a young prince and his masquerade ball held during a sick plague is ravaging his kingdom.

Directed by Nick Pelas and hosted by Stage Theatre & Film Company, this immersive theatre production kicks off the beginning of the Halloween festivities at Martello Tower F, Marine Parade West, on Clacton's seafront.

Tickets are £18 and include a drink, programme and masquerade mask to add to the gothic atmosphere of both the play and its location.
