Autumn 2015 Production


The Turn of The Screw

Henry James’s ghost story, adapted for the stage by Jack Neary

Directed by Brian Ormrod

A young governess arrives at an isolated country house to take care of two children, Miles and Flora. Their parents are dead and their uncle takes no real interest in their upbringing. With only the housekeeper to support her, the governess finds herself in a terrifying life and death struggle for the souls of her young charges, and haunted by the ghosts of the previous governess Miss Jessel and her lover Peter Quint. The Turn of the Screw is one of literature’s most famous and disturbing works, both psychological thriller and ghost story.

NSDA Play Festival : 2014/15

ACT submitted one play into the North Staffordshire Drama Society Festival last season, and that was our November production of The Day After the Fair by Frank Harvey.

Twenty three plays were entered into the competition by eight local drama groups, and at the Gala Evening in June, ACT’s production of The Day After the Fair received more nominations than any of the other plays in the Festival; namely Philip Jackson (best director), Marie Black (best actress), Diana Lane (best supporting performance), Rachel Mullock and James Tomkinson (both for best performance under the age of 21), and Barbara Malcolm (special adjudicators’ award for costume.)

In addition our congratulations go particularly to Rachel Mullock, who received the award for best performance under the age of 21.
