The UMBC Department of Theatre presents The Turn of the Screw by Jack Neary, directed by Brandon McCoy.
The Turn of the Screw is a theatrical adaptation of a late 19th century novella of the same title.
This play is a psychological and suspenseful drama in the classic style of gothic storytelling. Isolated in a sprawling manor in 19th century England, a governess is hired to watch a precocious young brother and sister in this haunting adaptation of Henry James’ classic novella.Though the governess bonds with the children at first, she quickly begins to suspect something is wrong when she sees the grotesque figures of the former governess and caretaker of the manor —both of whom are supposedly deceased. Is she seeing actual ghosts, or merely figments of her imagination? Fearing for her life and sanity, the governess begins an investigation to find out what happened to her predecessors and who else knows of their presence.
The Turn of the Screw is produced by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc. (www.playscripts.com)
