Date Posted: 05/11/2012

Rebecca Lenkiewicz’s new stage adaptation of Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw will open at London’s Almeida Theatre on 18th January.

Directed by Lindsay Posner, whose previous successes at the Almeida include The House of Games, Tom and Viv, The Hypochondriac and Romance, The Turn of the Screw will run until 16th March.


When a new governess arrives at a remote estate in Bly to care for Miles and Flora, the wild but angelic pair charm their new guardian with flowers, poetry and song.

As she grows to love her two wards, figures appear in the darkness outside and the corners of the house are haunted by those that have gone before. The governess must confront her fear and protect the children from the alarming dangers that surround them.

Tickets are now available for group travel organisers to book, with concessionary rates available for educational groups.
