A Victorian phsycological and supernatural thriller set in a country house. Based on a novell by Henry James, it is the story of Miss Grey, a young governess who is employed by the charming Mr Crimond to act as governess to his niece and nephew, Miles and Flora.
It is clear from the outset that there is a sinister presence in the house which threatens the children - or do they encourage it? The housekeeper Mrs Grose is certainly frightened about something.
The scandal of the previous governess Miss Jessel and her lover, the valet Peter Quint, ended in their deaths, but did they ever leave the house? A battle ensues between Miss Grey and these malevolent spirits for nothing less than the children themselves.
Written using much of the original dialogue from the novella this is a faithfull adaptation of the story and we'll be setting this firmly in it's 1875 roots.
The play will have a semi abstract setting to allow for multiple locations within the mansion and some trickery to assist the ethereal nature of two of the characters - think of an Escher drawing in a Victorian setting.
Directed by Natalie Crompton
