The latest masterpiece to the hit The Black Box Theatre stage will surely leave you with a few turned screws.

The Turn of the Screw, by Jeffrey Hatcher, comes to The Black Box Theatre (1623 5th Avenue Moline) this Thursday Jul 16 through Saturday Jul 19 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday Jul 20 at 2 p.m.

Genuine chills are provided in this tale of a governess, left in charge of a boy and a girl at a lonely estate, who begins to suspect that the ghosts of two former servants have hideous designs upon the children. But the governess is the only one who can see the ghosts—and to complicate matters further, the children may know more than they’re telling. If the governess is right, the children are in terrible peril, but if she’s wrong, she herself might be driving them mad.

With every twist in the plot (or turn of the screw) the tension increases until something—or someone—must snap.
