The Turn of the Screw

21 Jul - 12 Aug 2023

"There are some demons even Hell won't shelter..."

A young woman is sent to an isolated country estate to care for two children. A boy and a girl, Miles and Flora. 

The children are charming, if perhaps a little too precocious. And for a while everything seems perfect. But something is gathering, waiting. There is a figure in the darkness.

And there are sins that don't die with the sinner.

A brand-new adaptation of one of the most celebrated horror stories ever written, The Turn of the Screw is a creeping and malevolent exploration of the way the crimes of the past poison long into the future.

Based on the classic novella by Henry James and written and directed by Tooth and Sinew's Richard Hilliar (U.B.U: A Cautionary Tale of Catastrophe), this psychological thriller will leave you questioning your senses and checking every shadow.

Book your tickets for The Turn of the Screw today.
