The Turn of the Screw by Jeffrey Hatcher

The Naked Stage Presents
The Turn of the Screw

Book by Jeffrey Hatcher
July 20 – August 5

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 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?
