“The Turn of the Screw”

This November you can see me in “The Turn of the Screw”, which I’m also co-producing.

At a secluded English country estate, a young woman takes a job as a governess to a pair of recently orphaned children. But soon after her arrival, ghostly visions and strange occurrences reveal a sinister presence around her young charges. Is the estate haunted by restless spirits? Are the children somehow complicit? Or has her fear and imagination taken hold of her?

Simple Machine presents The Turn of the Screw this November, bringing Henry James’ classic gothic thriller to two historic Boston settings. This adaptation by Jeffrey Hatcher ratchets up the psychological suspense and intimacy of the story with two actors playing all the roles. Anna Waldron plays the eager young governess, determined to protect the children in her care at all costs. Stephen Libby takes on the rest of the characters of the story, from the children’s distant uncle, to the estate’s housekeeper, to the troubled 10-year-old boy. The production will be directed by M. Bevin O’Gara.

Performances take place in two historic landmarks in Boston, The Gibson House Museum, and the Taylor House Bed & Breakfast. Built as homes in the 1850s, both houses provide an intimate and authentic space for the 1898 ghost story. Seating will be extremely limited for this exceptional production.

Performances are November 8th through the 23rd.  Visit www.simplemachinetheatre.com for details and to buy tickets!

Love – it brings out our best, and our worst: Beatrice has sworn off men. Benedick has sworn off women. They’re made for each other – they just don’t know it yet. Young Claudio wants to marry Hero, but the scheming Don John has a plan to ruin everything.

The audience follows the action through picturesque Lynn Woods for the wit, mischief and merriment of Much Ado About Nothing, where lovers and villains must all take cover when “little Cupid’s crafty arrow” flies.

 

Luther at Apollinaire

I’m back at Apollinaire, appearing in Luther. And by appearing, I mean sock puppets. Here’s what Apollinaire has to say:

A ferocious satire in which a society dealing with its own form of PTSD adopts out traumatized veterans in a manner somewhere between the ASPCA and the Foster Parents Plan.

Well-intentioned, high-strung parents Walter and Marjorie love Luther to a fault. But should they have brought him to the office party?

The show runs from April 5 – May 4.
