by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold - Jul 27, 2015

In this 2015 season of 'Magic, Murder, and Mayhem' Maine's Theater at Monmouth serves up a gripping adaptation of Henry James' familiar tale of psychological Gothic horror, The Turn of the Screw. The novella tells the story of a governess' battle to wrench her two young charges from the grasp of spirits who haunt their estate and to probe The Dark secrets which exert a debilitating psychological hold on everyone at Bly.
