A ghostly tale of innocence and experience: what do children know; what do adults think children know; and what do children think adults think they know…
Miss Jessel is dead.

A new governess 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.

Adult themes and content make this play suitable for audiences of 14+
