Introducing The Innocents

Just in time for Hallowe'en, we've got an old-fashioned ghost story for you, about a lovely young governess, Miss Giddens, who comes to a country estate in the late 1800's to see to the instruction of two precocious children. With their parents dead, their guardian uncle off in the city and quite uninterested, the children have both come under the influence of two despicable members of the household - one the former governess, the other the former butler. Both of the children have been touched by this evil they do not understand, and it makes them act out in mysterious, terrifying ways.

Though both the governess and the butler are dead long before the play begins, their spirits continue to haunt the house, and possess the children. It is up to Miss Giddens to free them of this terror (for no one else will dare), and save their immortal souls.

Based on The Turn of the Screw, by Henry James this play features many a good fright, and a plot that will keep you guessing until the last moments of the play. The show will run October 23rd, 24th and 25th at 8pm, with a 2pm matinee on the 25th as well. Tickets are now on sale at the Fergus Grand Theatre box office, available by calling 519-787-1981.
