"Miss Jessel is dead. A new governess arrives at a remote estate in Bly to care for Miles and Flora. Wild but angelic, they charm their guardian with flowers, poetry and song.
"But as she grows to love her two wards, figures appear in the darkness outside and the corners of the house are haunted by those that have gone before. The Governess must confront her fear and protect the children from the alarming dangers that surround them." – from the Almeida website.
The world premiere of an adaptation from Henry James's gothic novella, by Rebecca Lenkiewicz – directed by Lindsay Posner.
After an initial phase when I booked seats in blocs for members to sit together, this option is now closed, so please go ahead and book the seat/s that you'd prefer, on the Almeida website, or at the box office in person.
I would be grateful if all members can contribute £1 on arrival on the evening (to help defray the approx. £100 per annum that Meetup charges to run a group) – thanks very much in advance.
As ever, we'll have dinner after the performance, at Le Mercury Deuxième, a few doors away. When you RSVP, do let me know if you'd like to join us, so I can include you in the dinner booking.
