Prime Stage Theatre to Open Season with TURN OF THE SCREW, 11/2-10
Prime Stage Theatre is excited to open its 2013-2014 season with Turn of the Screw, adapted by Jeffery Hatcher, from the novella by Henry James.
Directed by Joe Warik, Turn of the Screw is "a total theatrical experience, a challenge for the imagination." An old English Manor House is filled with secrets, strange movements flicker in the underbrush, unidentifiable cries are heard in the moonlight, and abrupt coldness and breezes touch your imaginations. Do the ghosts haunt the children? Or is it just her imagination?
The lead of the Governess will be played by Lissa Brennan. Brennan is an actor, director and playwright. She was most recently seen in Don Juan Comes Home From The War and The Vibrator Play with Pittsburgh Irish & Classical Theatre.
George Saulnier will play the narrator, Uncle, Mrs. Grose and the boy, Miles. He recently made his Pittsburgh debut in Same Time, Next Year at the South Park Theater, directed by Wayne Brinda.
The performance will run from Nov. 2-10 at The New Hazlett Theater, with a preview performance on Friday, Nov. 1.
Following the 8 pm performance on Nov. 8, join us for the premiere event of 2nd Stage at Prime Stage. Celebrate the 45th anniversary of Night of the Living Dead with readings of tales of terror hosted by David Crawford as the master of the macabre himself, Edgar Allan Poe.
Tickets for both shows are on sale now.
