Turn of the Screw

Presented by Simple Machine Theatre | Nov. 8 – 23, 2013 at the Gibson House Museum and Taylor House Bed & Breakfast

Henry James’ eerie gothic thriller presented on location in historic Boston settings with two actors playing all the roles.


“A haunting production that takes terrific advantage of Jeffrey Hatcher’s spare adaptation . . . an imaginative alternative to traditional theater. And it will encourage you to steer clear of shadows.” – The Boston Globe

“Director M. Bevin O’Gara and Lighting Designer Ian King create a creepy atmosphere, masterfully ratcheting up the tension and suspense . . . Whether or not you believe in ghosts, the spellbinding performances will scare the bejeezers out of you.” – Broadway World

“A wonderfully eerie experience. Seldom is theater so close-up and chillingly personal. [Director] M. Bevin O’Gara… tackles this famous ghost tale with her typical ingenuity . . . it is engrossing theater for the discriminating theatergoer.” – South Shore Critic
