This is Henry James’s endlessly provocative tale of suspense, ghosts, horror and repressed sexuality. This fine theatrical adaptation gives the famous story yet another turn of its own: Our two actors, Morris Arvoy and Veronica Hetke, will portray all the characters – living and dead! The story has had many adaptations, the most famous of which is the classic 1961 Deborah Kerr film “The Innocents.” We believe you’ll be enthralled and captivated!
Great Escape Stage Company’s Drama Slams are one-night-only staged readings of a play rather than a full-scale production, a format Great Escape has offered frequently since the company was launched six years ago.
“We spend one day rehearsing movement and interpretation, and then read it aloud for an audience, with scripts in hand,” artistic director Randy Lake said. “We’ve found that our audiences enjoy getting a chance to see and hear more plays this way, and our actors get a chance to perform more frequently without having all the memorization associated with a standard production.”
The admission fee for our drama slams is $10. We hope you will join us for an evening worth remembering!
