Box Tale Soup theatre company return to the area with The Turn of the Screw, an adaptation of the famous Henry James novella, which combines human and puppet performances to bring this gothic horror story to life. An Edinburgh fringe sell out show, The Turn of the Screw, tells the story of a governess charged with looking after two small children, in the isolated country estate of Bly House. She is charmed at first by her surroundings, until sinister figures appear, with the intent of corrupting the children as the governess battles to save them. Using beautifully handcrafted puppets, clever and smooth set moves and wonderful acting Box Tale Soup offer a brilliant portrayal of this classic horror story, all performed to a haunting original soundtrack. “The Turn of the Screw is both wonderfully designed and excellently performed. Creepy and tense, this is an imaginative and thoughtful adaptation that will delight fans of the gothic and macabre.” Fringeguru review
