1st Night Photos: Almeida's Turn of the Screw

By • West End
Rebecca Lenkiewicz's adaptation of Henry James' The Turn of the Screw opened at the Almeida Theatre last night (24 January 2013).

Running as part of Michael Attenborough’s final season as artistic director of the Almeida, the play tells the story of a new governess, who arrives at a remote estate in Bly to care for Miles and Flora. Wild but angelic they charm their guardian with flowers, poetry and song. But as she grows to love her two wards, figures appear in the darkness outside and the corners of the house are haunted by those that have gone before. The Governess must confront her fear and protect the children from the alarming dangers that surround them.

Starring Gemma Jones and Anna Madeley, it runs until 16 March.

Guests at the first night party included designer Peter McKintosh, director Lindsay Posner, Indhu Rubasingham, Meera Syal and Laura McAlpine.
