Lindsay Posner returns to the Almeida to direct Rebecca Lenkiewicz’ new stage adaptation of Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw.

Miss Jessel is dead. A new governess arrives at a remote estate in Bly to care for Miles and Flora. Wild but angelic they charm their guardian with flowers, poetry and song. But 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.

The Turn of the Screw was originally written in 1898 by American born writer Henry James’ (1843 – 1916). James’ novella has been adapted by Benjamin Britten as an opera, was adapted for film -The Innocents - starring Deborah Kerr and for television with Lynne Redgrave in 1974 and in 1999 with Jodhi May and Colin Firth. The novella was also produced as a ballet by William Tuckett, a Radio 4 adaptation by Neville Teller and a BBC TV drama starring Michelle Dockery and Sue Johnston.
