Turn of the Screw by Jeffrey Hatcher
This Halloween, Glenview's Oil Lamp Theater will be  mounting a production of Jeffrey Hatcher's adaptation of the gothic ghost story Turn of the Screw.  The play is a haunting psychological thriller.

The play tells the story of a young governess (played by Jennifer Vance) sent to an isolated country mansion to oversee the education of two young orphans.  Her employer (played by Martin Hughes, who deftly plays multiple characters) and the orphans' uncle, a wealthy and mysterious man from London, gives her only one caution  no matter what happens, she is not to bother him with their problems or bad behavior.  Young Flora has fallen mute, and her brother Miles has been expelled from his boarding school for an unnamed and insidious reason.

Slowly the governess begins to be haunted by spirits, the ghosts of the late valet and the deceased former governess.  As she continues to be visited by these terrible apparitions, she begins to fear that they will do something to her two young charges, or worse  that they already have.  She cannot know for sure if the ghosts are real, or merely hallucinations that plague her as she slowly descends into madness.

Turn of the Screw is a deeply spooky tale devised to capture the imagination and leave the audience with more questions than answers.  Due to adult themes and content, this play is not recommended for young children or the faint of heart.  Keith Gerth, Oil Lamp Theater's founder and artistic director, will direct the production.
