The Turn of the Screw

The Turn of the Screw (2008)
Currently available for touring

An electrifying production of Henry James’ classic novella. At turns tragic and terrifying, The Turn of the Screw centers on an unnamed governess and her two orphaned charges – who find themselves in a house filled with ghosts. Directed by foolsFURY member Rod Hipskind, the show was infused with our vibrant physical style, and deftly turned the audience/performer relationship on its head. Using explosively inventive staging, The Turn of the Screw is a layered and delicate exploration of madness, death, and love. Presented in the FURY Factory 2007, and then as part of the San Francisco Fringe Festival on a double bill with Banana Bag and Bodice’s The Sewers.
