Box Tale Soup Theatre Company present: Turn of the Screw
“Nobody but me, till now, has ever heard. It’s beyond everything. Nothing at all that I know touches it.”
The Turn of the Screw, by Box Tale Soup theatre company, is an adaptation of the famous Henry James novella – which combines human and puppet performances to bring this gothic horror story to life. It tells of a governess charged with looking after two small children, in the isolated country estate of Bly House. She is charmed at first by her surroundings, until sinister figures appear, with the intent of corrupting the children as the governess battles to save them.
Back by popular demand following performances of Wind in the Willows and Northanger Abbey, this latest production was a sell-out at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe. Creepy and tense, this is an imaginative and thoughtful adaptation that will delight fans of the gothic and macabre and promises to be another entertaining evening.
