The Turn of the Screw


The Carriage House Players will open their fall season with The Turn of the Screw! Just in time for Halloween comes this classic adaptation of one of the most famous ghost stories of all time! A young governess journeys to a lonely English manor house to care for two recently orphaned children. But she is not their first governess. Her predecessor, Miss Jessel, drowned herself when she became pregnant by the sadistic valet, Peter Quint, who was himself found dead soon after under mysterious circumstances. Now the new governess has begun to see the specters of Quint and Jessel haunting the children, and she must find a way to stop the fiends before it is too late. But one frightening question tortures the would-be heroine: Are the ghosts real, or are they the product of her own fevered imagination? The Turn of the Screw by Jeffrey Hatcher, adapted from the story by Henry James Directed by Brielle Levenberg

Dates: October 11, 12, 18, & 19 at 8 pm, and October 13 & 20 at 3 pm.
