This thrilling production of Henry James’ much-loved classic ghost story is faithful to the original and captures its much-celebrated ambiguity. Set in 1840, a young governess agrees to look after two orphans, a boy and a girl, in Bly, a seemingly idyllic country house. But, shortly after her arrival, she realises that they are not alone. The Governess will risk everything to keep the children safe, even if it means giving herself up to the Others. Years later, confronted by the past she is compelled to account for what actually happened to her and those under her protection. Tickets for Turn of the Screw are available from the Worthing Theatres box office on 01903 206206 and online at worthingtheatres.co.uk.
