Henry James’ Victorian ghost story about a governess slowly unraveling while caring for two unruly children who seem to be frequented by a couple of poltergeists is one of the most debated psychological dramas of the 20th century—is she batty or ain’t she? Find out what playwright Jeffrey Hatcher thinks and be prepared for a lot of repressed sexuality, superstitious assumptions and the general belief that women are plagued by delusions and spells—how else do you think they manage to raise precocious pranksters without wringing their necks? Oh, for the days of dungeons.
