London’s Almeida Theatre is presenting a stage version of the famous Henry James novel The Turn of the Screw.
Visitors to central London hotels have until March 16th to see the dramatic performance of the classic ghost story.
Set on a large isolated estate in Bly, the tale focuses on two young children, Miles and Flora, who have recently received the protection of a new governess. Miles is soon expelled from school and the nanny starts to see the ghostly figures of a man and woman wandering the grounds of the estate.
She soon uncovers the truth about what happened to her predecessor and the secret within the lives of both Miles and Flora.
The new adaptation is directed by Lindsey Posner and aims to have audience members seating on the edge of their seats with suspense and fear throughout its two-hour running time.
The show’s producers claim: “The incredible Miles and Flora spectacular is about to begin. Do not leave the auditorium even if you are terrified. Or shocked. Some of the show is true and some is fiction.”
The Turn of the Screw is now on at the Almeida Theatre and performances will start at 7.30pm, with some days also including a matinee performance at 2.30pm. Tickets start from £8.00.
Theatre-goers can find the Almeida in the centre of Islington. The nearest London Underground stations are Highbury and Islington on the Victoria line and Angel on the Northern line – Bank branch.
