[Perspectives] The evil eye

For some people, the Christmas period, with its artificial gaiety and forced reunion with annoying relatives, can be difficult to bear and evoke murderous thoughts. So a grim play with a murder, mysterious noises, and a scary Christmas tree could be the perfect antidote to the stress of the yuletide period. Edgar Allan Poe’s short story The Tell-Tale Heart, on stage at the National Theatre in London, UK, in an adaptation by playwright and director Anthony Neilson, is that play. Poe is widely recognised as a master of Gothic horror fiction and The Tell-Tale Heart offers plenty of food for thought for those who are willing to abandon the festive Christmas atmosphere.
