My 4-hander adaptation of Henry James’ novella ‘TURN OF THE SCREW’ is being produced by Dermot McLaughlin, the Mercury Theatre Colchester and the Grand Theatre Wolverhampton in 2018. Opening in Colchester in February, it will tour the UK through the spring. For more information please go to https://www.turnofthescrewplay.com/
James’ original novella deals with sexual taboos and elements of evil in a way that was psychologically way ahead of its time. As the adaptor, my task was to retain as much of the ambiguity from the original as possible. Not easy on the stage where something either is or isn’t!
