Terror night at Wisbech theatre




Be prepared for a night of terror at Wisbech’s Angles Theatre later this month.

The latest production by the Wisbech Players, The Innocents, is a play adapted from Henry James’ spine-chilling novella, The Turn of the Screw.

Written by William Archibald, it tells the story of a young governess who arrives at a large country estate to look after two orphaned children.

The action takes place over the course of only a few days but, in that short time, a story of unspeakable horror unfolds.

The governess begins to suspect that all is not well with the house and the two precocious children and confides her fears to the housekeeper, who has lived there for decades.

Very protective of the children she is forced to tell the governess about two former servants who were in a relationship.

Their impact on the two children begins to manifest itself as evil and innocence collide.

Directed by Gay Hoyle, performances run from Wednesday, February 26, to Friday, February 28, starting at 7.30pm.

Tickets – priced at £11 (children £10) – are available online on at www.anglestheatre.co.uk or through the Box Office on 01945 4744447.
