The Turn of the Screw

The Turn of the Screw Trailer


The story of unearthly encounters at a remote country house, and of a young governess desperate to protect her children, finds chilling new levels of suspense in this unique outdoor production at Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre.

The award-winning Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre is a London summertime essential, creating unforgettable theatre in the heart of a Royal Park. Together with English National Opera, they rediscover Benjamin Britten's The Turn of the Screw.

Director Timothy Sheader and members of the ENO orchestra, conducted by ENO Mackerras Fellow Toby Purser, bring their award-winning skills to Britten’s masterly reworking of Henry James' classic novella.
