  • Exposition
  • Rising Action 1
  • Rising Action 2
  • Prince Prospero is the ruler of a kingdom that has been struck by an extremely fatal and horribly gruesome disease called the "Red Death."
  • Climax
  • Prospero leaves his subjects to die and decides to hide in an abbey along with the nobles of his kingdom. They believe they can escape death.
  • Falling Action
  • After six months in the abbey, Prospero hosts a grand masquerade ball in the seven resplendent rooms of his castle. Each room is marked by a different colour. The last room is so disturbing that no one enters. It is black with red windows with an ebony clock that chimes every hour, halting the raptures of the guests.
  • Resolution
  • As the party continued and the ebony clock was about to strike midnight, an obscure visitor enters the ball wearing a disturbing mask designed to look like a plague victim.
  • This infuriates Prospero and he chases after the figure into the gothic black and red room. However, when Prospero reached the figure, he dropped dead.
  • As the other guests try to vanquish the intruder, they discover that there is no one underneath the mask. The "Red Death" itself came to the party. One by one all the men and women dropped to the floor. In the end, the "Red Death" conquered the kingdom and held dominion.
