The irresistible historical comedy about two rival mediums in Victorian London.
Mrs Wood is London’s premier medium. She has survived the competitive world of contacting the beyond where many others have failed, has avoided the slips that revealed others as frauds and is still hosting packed-out seances with the great and the good of Victorian society.
Yet, some of her patrons have recently cancelled their appointments. There are reports of American mediums who are materialising full spirits and audiences are no longer content with the knocking on tables and candle theatrics of years gone by. And then, at one of Mrs Wood’s routine gatherings, she hears something terrifying – faint, but unmistakable: a yawn.
Mrs Wood needs to spice up her brand. She decides to take on Emmie, a young protege, to join her show. But is Emmie the naive ingenue she seems to be? Or does she pose more of a threat to Mrs Wood’s reign as London’s most celebrated medium than Mrs Wood could ever have imagined?
