Turn of the Screw

27th March 2018 - 31st March 2018

Turn of the Screw
by Henry James
Adapted by Tim Luscombe
Starring Carli Norris and Maggie McCarthy

THE ORIGINAL INSPIRATION FOR THE WOMAN IN BLACK

A young governess agrees to look after two orphaned children in Bly, a seemingly idyllic country house. But shortly after her arrival, she realises that they are not alone. There are others – the ghosts of Bly’s troubled past. The Governess will risk everything to keep the children safe, even if it means giving herself up to The Others. Years later, confronted by the past she is compelled to account for what actually happened to her and the innocents under her protection.

 “It jumps through time telling the story with all its twists and turns”*

This brand new and “deliciously atmospheric update” by Tim Luscombe is “intelligent, insightful and infused with other worldly menace”. “Director Daniel Buckroyd, skilfully balances believable psychological drama against lurid Victorian phantasmagoria” on Sara Perks “superb set”**

Turn of the Screw has been interpreted or adapted many times and provided rich inspiration for The Woman in Black (written in 1983). Accommodating Henry James’ much overlooked prologue this new Turn of the Screw is faithful to the original “casting new light on its ambiguities”.

“Revelling in the text’s contradictions (it) picks apart the tales’ layered unreliable narratives”.

This dynamic, thrilling adaptation of Henry James’ much-loved and genre defining classic ghost story Turn of the Screw lets you draw your own conclusions about the events at Bly and where guilt resides.
