“A ghost story that tells the tale of an apparition appearing to a child always lends the tale a certain ‘turn of the screw.’ But if one child lends the tale one turn, what then can be said of two children? The answer is, of course – two children give two turns.” So begins Jeffrey Hatcher’s stage adaptation of Henry James’ 1898 tale of suspense and horror, “Turn of the Screw,” appearing at the Seaside Repertory Theatre this October.

Featuring returning Rep company members Destin Bass, Meghan Bode, and directed by Rep Artistic Director, Brook Stetler.

A young governess journeys to a lonely English manor to care for two recently orphaned children. But she is not their first governess. She begins to see the specters of their previous caretakers 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 a product of her fevered imagination?

“In this beautifully executed adaptation…the audience is forced through subtly ambiguous shadings, to vividly project what is cleverly left unseen and unspoken. A dazzling act of the imagination. Mr. Hatcher has pushed James’ clever turn to its furthest degree.”
-The New York Times
