From July 20 through August 5, 2012.
The Naked Stage is delighted to present The Turn of the Screw by Jeffrey Hatcher from the story by Henry James. Based on the provocative tale of suspense, horror and repressed sexuality, this adaptation of The Turn of the Screw gives the famous story yet another turn of its own. 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 the 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 are the ghosts real, or are they the product of her fevered imagination? The Turn of the Screw stars Naked Stage Artistic Director Katherine Amadeo, Matthew William Chizever and is directed by Margaret M. Ledford.
