“Are you afraid he’ll corrupt you?”
The Turn of the Screw, Henry James’ acclaimed gothic tale of haunted goings on at an old country mansion, comes to the Open Air Theatre in June.
Benjamin Britten’s production is an unmissable piece of theatre created in co-production with the English National Opera, and members of the ENO orchestra, conducted by ENO Mackerras Fellow Toby Purser.
This suspenseful and ferocious reworking of James' treasured novella is guaranteed to chill the warm air about you.

A governess finds that her new charges are two strangely beautiful, oddly distant and eerily silent children, Miles and Flora. Ghostly figures emerge from the top of dark towers and at dirty windows, and with a growing horror the governess realises that these fiendish imaginings intend to the corrupt the minds and bodies of the children in her care. Her terror grows as the figures appear more real to her and the children move closer to the evil that beckons them.
But, are these unearthly encounters just the imagination of the governess? And, who is the real threat to Miles and Flora?
