The playbill for Taylor University’s Spring 1972 performance of Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw adapted by Allen Goetcheus for Chamber Theatre.

The Turn of the Screw is the story of a governess who takes a job in an English country house and begins to see what she believes are the ghosts of two former employees.

This is one of three plays performed at Eastbrook Middle School Cafetorium because of the destruction of Shreiner Auditorium in Helena Music Hall. Helena Music Hall was destroyed in a fire January 20, 1972. The next building to host Taylor theatre on campus was the Little Theater in the 1972-73 school year.
