Revered as one of the greatest ghost stories ever told! Henry James’s novella, “The Turn of the Screw”, is an eerie Victorian masterpiece. The 2nd show of Town Players’ 75th Season!

Genuine chills are provided in this tale of a governess, left in charge of a boy and a girl at a lonely estate. She begins to suspect that the ghosts of two former servants have hideous designs upon the children. But the governess is the only one who can see the ghosts—and to complicate matters further, the children may know more than they’re telling. If the governess is right, the children are in terrible peril, but if she’s wrong, she herself might be driving them mad. With every twist in the plot (or turn of the screw) the tension increases until something—or someone—must snap.
