“The Turn of the Screw is a suggesting, haunting piece.” Springfield Union-News

Victoria’s Sara Topham, a star at the Stratford Festival, makes her Belfry debut in this provocative adaptation of Henry James’ classic tale of suspense, horror and repressed sexuality. A young governess journeys to a remote English manor house to care for two recently orphaned children. Her predecessor, Miss Jessel and a valet, Mr. Quint, both died under mysterious circumstances in the manor and now the new governess is haunted by their spectres. But are they real? Madness and mystery are brilliantly concealed in this spine-tingling tale.

Starring Sara Topham and Graeme Somerville
