A RENEGADE retelling of Edgar Allan Poe's twisted tale, The Black Cat, from LaPelle’s Factory in association with LittleMighty, comes to the Everyman Theatre’s Irving Studio next week.

Two performers dismember the process of adaptation by reimagining a macabre classic with the cheekiest of glints in their eyes.

An enigmatic writer, Mufaro Makubika, has adapted Poe's original story and handed scripts over to two performers who are now taking merciless liberties with the words.

Balanced between the hilarious and the horrific, this show revels in the darkness that hides just under the surface.

The Black Cat is gravely good fun, but be warned: it will get catty.

See The Black Cat at The Everyman Theatre's Irving Studio on Wednesday, March 6 and Thursday, March 7. 7.45pm.

Tickets are £11.50 (£10 concessions) from everymantheatre.org.uk or 01242 572573.
