The Tell-Tale HeartAnthony Neilson directs his own darkly comic and twisted thriller at the National's Dorfman Theatre. Based on a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, the story is about the twisted relationship between a young playwright with writer's block and her landlady who has a life-altering condition. Pressure mounts on the writer, and her relationship with the landlady becomes ever-more suffocating in The Tell-Tale Heart, a twisted, graphic and darkly-comic treat which contains provocative language and some violent scenes.

About National Theatre: Dorfman

In place of the National Theatre's Cottesloe Theatre, which closed in 2013, the Dorfman Theatre offers a greater capacity, more comfortable seats, better sightlines and enlarged foyer spaces. The National Theatre's smallest space, it was renamed after philanthropist Lloyd Dorfman, founder and chairman of Travelex, who provided a large donation towards the National's £80m future development programme.
