Directed by jef brown
Sunday & Monday, Dec. 9 & 10 at 7pm
at 8 N. Fort Thomas Avenue, Fort Thomas, KY 41075
Based on Henry James’s provocative tale of suspense, horror and repressed sexuality: A young governess journeys to a lonely English manor house to care for two recently orphaned children. She is not their first governess – her predecessor, Miss Jessel, drowned herself when she became involved with the sadistic valet, Peter Quint, who was himself found dead soon after. The new governess begins to see the specters of Quint and Jessel haunting the children, and she is tortured by the frightening question: Are the ghosts real, or are they the product of her own fevered imagination?
The cast will consist of one woman 20-35 (the Governess); and one man, 30-50 (Multiple roles).
Performance dates are April 26-May 4, 2019 Auditions will consist of readings from the script. Bring resume, known conflicts for the period Feb 24 through May 4; headshot not necessary but welcome.
