As people begin to think about their Halloween costumes and pumpkins start to appear on front porches across the county, the Hippodrome Theater in Gainesville is also gearing up for the Halloween season.

The Hippodrome’s latest play, The Turn of the Screw, is based on a nineteenth century story by Henry James, which has been adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Paula Cunniffe spoke with Christopher Swan, who plays four characters in the play, including the housekeeper, the bachelor and the young boy, and with Nichole Hamilton, who plays the governess about what can be expected from the Turn of the Screw.
