The Turn of The Screw – 15th July 2011

Another good outing to The George Hotel in Lichfield to see this Intimate Theatre performance.  It certainly was ‘intimate’ as there was no stage as such and the seats were arranged so that the audience was lined down either side of the room with the actors brushing past within inches of those in the front row seats.  This helped to create a quite ghostly atmosphere and everyone appeared to be caught up in the mood of the piece.  It was felt that the acting was of the same high standard as that in ‘Abigail’s Party’ and the performances of the children were particularly noted. The psychological tension was felt to be more effective than the appearance of the ‘ghosts’ themselves.  The ending puzzled a number of us as it was very abrupt and, as we had not read the book, we weren’t entirely certain whether Miles had died or not.  In any event, despite a few scary moments, or perhaps because of these, everyone enjoyed the show!
