“Nobody but me, till now, has ever heard. It’s beyond everything. Nothing at all that I know touches it.”

Award-winning Box Tale Soup present a new adaptation of Henry James’ disturbing story, featuring puppetry and a haunting original soundtrack.

At an isolated estate, a young governess arrives. Before long she fears there is something darker in the

depths of Bly House, and battles to save the children from the mysterious figures who seek to corrupt them.

Don’t miss this Edinburgh Fringe 2018 sell-out show.

Previous performances at The Swallow Theatre includeNorthanger Abbey and The Picture of Dorian Gray.
