Turn of the Screw
 Spring/Summer 2008


Henry James's The Turn of the Screw takes you through a psychological mystery where a new governess suspects her two young charges, Miles and Flora, of consorting with sinister spirits and battles to save them. But do these ghosts truly exist or are they the psychotic imaginings of an insane woman? Like Henry James's novella, Theatrework's production of this wonderful novel is deliberately ambiguous so that you constantly ponder the innocence or evil of the children and question the heroism or insanity of the governess. Things in Turn of the screw are not what they seem to be!
