The Turn of the Screw
Gibson House Museum: November 8, 9, 10, 15, 21, & 22
Taylor House Bed & Breakfast: November 14, 16, 17, & 23

At a secluded English country estate, a young woman takes a job as a governess to a pair of recently orphaned children. But soon after her arrival, ghostly visions and strange occurrences reveal a sinister presence around her young charges. Is the estate haunted by restless spirits? Are the children somehow complicit? Or has her fear and imagination taken hold of her?

Simple Machine presents The Turn of the Screw this November, bringing Henry James' classic gothic thriller to two historic Boston settings. This adaptation by Jeffrey Hatcher ratchets up the psychological suspense and intimacy of the story with two actors playing all the roles. Anna Waldron plays the eager young governess, determined to protect the children in her care at all costs. Stephen Libby takes on the rest of the characters of the story, from the children's distant uncle, to the estate's housekeeper, to the troubled 10-year-old boy. The production will be directed by M. Bevin O'Gara.

Performances take place in two historic landmarks in Boston, The Gibson House Museum, and the Taylor House Bed & Breakfast. Built as homes in the 1850s, both houses provide an intimate and authentic space for the 1898 ghost story. Seating will be extremely limited for this exceptional production.
