Book Now The Turn of The Screw

Friday 13 September, 2019 at 7:30 pm

 “Nobody but me, till now, has ever heard. It’s beyond everything. Nothing at all that I know touches it.”

Award-winning Box Tale Soup present a new adaptation of Henry James’ disturbing story, featuring puppetry and a haunting original soundtrack. Edinburgh Fringe 2018 sell-out show.

At an isolated estate, a young governess arrives. Before long she fears there is something darker in the depths of Bly House, and battles to save the children from the mysterious figures who seek to corrupt them.
