Henry James’ gothic ghost story, The Turn of The Screw, comes to the ADC stage this month, promising secrets, suspense and suspicion.
A young governess is hired to look after two seemingly perfect children following the death of their parents. But when she begins to notice strange figures coming and going throughout the house and grounds at Bly Manor, her thoughts turn to the supernatural.
But how far can she trust her senses – and can we, the audience, believe all she says?
The Turn of the Screw was first published in 1898, born out of the author’s life-long fascination with horror and lapped up by the late Victorian reading masses, whose appetite for gothic thrills was seemingly unquenchable.
This production runs from 13 to 16 May, at 11pm, with tickets priced between £5 and £6.
