“I want to save the children, not destroy them...”


Based on the greatest of Victorian ghost stories – Henry James’The Turn of the Screw – this is a play about a haunted mansion and a governess’s attempts to save the two orphaned children who inhabit it. Are the ghosts real or a figment of the imagination? Of those two possibilities, which is the most terrifying?


A rare opportunity to see this masterpiece of horror theatre, we dare you to visit Bly House, with its imposing battlements and rambling corridors, and let yourself be immersed in a Gothic world of terror.
