"Well, that, I think, is what I came for to be carried away."
A lively party runs late into the night, the remaining guests spellbound by a tale dredged up from the past...
Miss Jessel is dead. A new Governess arrives at Bly, eager to take over the education and protection of two innocent young children left behind. The idyllic setting promises happiness and peace, yet as the seasons pass a darkness falls on the estate. Figures move in the shadows and peer through windows. Something is watching the children, waiting to take them away - and the Governess stands alone, their sole protector. But do they want to be protected?
Anaїs Koivisto directs Jamie Wylie's haunting new adaptation of Henry James' classic novella of innocence, sensuality, and horror in a site-specific staging produced by Katherine Sommer and Everyday Inferno Theatre Company in partnership with The Morris-Jumel Mansion. Built in 1765, and rich with it's own supernatural history, Manhattan's oldest house provides the perfect setting for this eerie and iconic ghost story. The ghost of Eliza Jumel, the inspiration for Charles Dickens character Miss Havisham in Great Expectations, has been spotted roaming the halls on more than one occasion.
Everyday Inferno Theatre Company is devoted to creating adventurous theatrical productions of both new and classic texts. We seek to exceed the conventional limitations of low-budget theatre by exploring nontraditional spaces, stagecraft, and storytelling. We are committed to developing a diverse audience by producing work that is large in scope while keeping our production costs (and ticket prices) at a minimum.
