The Turn of the Screw (stage version)

By Henry James Adapted by Rebecca Lenkiewicz

Paperback £9.99

A chilling adaptation of Henry James's classic ghost story.

A young governess is given charge of two orphans on a remote estate. Miles and Flora charm their new guardian with poetry and song. A chilling history of the house and its former inhabitants surfaces as the governess unearths evils and tries to protect the children.

The Turn of the Screw premiered at the Almeida Theatre, London, in January 2013.
