THE TURN OF THE SCREW
By BENJAMIN BRITTEN
With a libretto by Myfanwy Piper
The Turn of the Screw is a dark and gripping tale that you are sure to enjoy. A young governess is hired to care for two children at Bly, an English country house. The position, which initially seemed promising, soon turns perplexing when the governess believes she sees a ghost. The housekeeper reveals a sordid series of events involving two former employees, now dead, who may have had inappropriate relationships with the young ones. The Children display bizarre and often troubling behavior. The ghosts torment them and the governess to such an extreme that she must decide whether to leave Bly House or stay in order to protect her charges. Is the danger immediate and real? Or is it conjured up by a disturbed mind?
