Two actors in 90 minutes craft a taut atmosphere of sinister tension to tell the haunting tale of a young governess who begins seeing ghosts while caring for two children on an isolated English estate. "The Turn of the Screw" is Henry James’ most popular work and Hatcher’s adaptation provides the opportunity for two superb actors to hold an audience rapt in a mesmerizing grip of intrigue.
