Harold Clurman Laboratory Theater Company

 About the Lab Theater

The Harold Clurman Laboratory Theater Company grew out of a feeling that the time had come for the Stella Adler Studio of Acting to produce, or reproduce, its spirit, voice and theatrical sensibilities on a professional level.

The mission of the Harold Clurman Laboratory Theater Company it to provide the community, through theater and discussion, with a place of exploration and experimentation of what it means be a human being.

The Turn of the Screw

Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher from the story by Henry James
Directed by Don K. Williams

Henry James’ classic ghost story tells the tale of a young governess just before the
turn of the last century who is tasked with the care of two rather peculiar children at a
country estate in England. The governess comes to believe the children are possessed
by the previous groundskeeper and governess who have since died. Sean Spann and
Emily Sulzberger play 10 roles in Jeffrey Hatcher’s brilliant adaptation. Presented
by the Harold Clurman Laboratory Theatre Company.
