UPCOMING SHOWS

 

THE TURN OF THE SCREW by Jeffrey Hatcher, from the story by Henry JamesTurn of the Screw by Jeffrey Hatcher from the story by Henry James

Described as “beautifully executed” and a “dazzling act of the imagination,” this adaptation of Henry James’ iconic novella is a provocative tale of suspense, horror, and repressed sexuality. A young governess journeys to a lonely English manor house to care for two orphans, and begins to see specters haunting the children. As she tries to stop the fiends before it’s too late, one frightening question tortures the would-be heroine: are the ghosts real, or are they the product of her own fevered imagination?
