The Turn of the Screw

The Turn of the Screw

Are the ghosts real, or are they the imaginings of the young governess sent alone to Bly Mansion to tend two “spirited” children?

ONLINE TICKET SALES ARE CLOSED, BUT TICKETS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR!
Jeffrey Hatcher’s adaptation of this Henry James classic highlights the psychological suspense by calling for just two actors: one to play the governess, the other to play multiple characters whose stories swirl alternative facts inside the novice governess’s head. She is warned, she doubts herself. Can we trust ourselves? Come and share in one character’s search for truth.

Six performances at the Victorian-style Historic Wesley Center, with start times to enhance the Gothic chill. (But see below for additional programming.)

Directed by Kristin Halsey. With Kayla Dvorak Feld and Edwin Strout.

Additional Programming

This play is based on a famous novella by Henry James, and we’ve got just the thing for you to add to your evening at the theatre. Come half an hour before performance time and hear Dr. Ed Griffin, professor of English (emeritus) at the U of Minnesota, give a 15-minute introduction that will

  • alert you to things to look for;
  • highlight differences between the original and this adaptation;
  • NOT give away the end!

That’s half an hour before performance time to get a heads up on this most interesting of stories.
