The Turn of the Screw

The Turn of the Screw $9.99

Douglas Jones from Henry James

Published by Dramatic Publishing

3 Male 3 Female

Genuine chills are provided in this tale of a governess, left in charge of a boy and a girl at a lonely estate, who begins to suspect that the ghosts of two former servants have hideous designs upon the children

But the governess is the only one who can see the ghosts - and to complicate matters further, the children may know more than they're telling

If the governess is right, the children are in terrible peril, but if she's wrong, she herself might be driving them mad

With every twist in the plot (or turn of the screw) the tension increases until something - or someone - must snap
