After Henry James

Directed by Mervyn Lloyd

Saturday 26th March – Saturday 2nd April 1977 in the Auditorium

A new play based on a chilling tale by that master of oblique horror, Henry James. In an isolated Suffolk manor house a young governess finds herself apparently enmeshed in the unholy possession of her two young charges by the dead and evil spirits which haunt them. But could she be mistaken…?
