Program Description

Elizabeth and James, passing out soup to the poor in the East End, recognize, among the hungry faces, their former underhouse parlor maid, Sarah. At Elizabeth's insistence, she returns with them to Eaton Place--but not to her former post, which has been filled by a new girl, Alice. So Sarah finds herself put on as scullery maid, a job not at all to her liking. Nothing for it, she decides, but to get rid of Alice. Which she does--with the help of a few well chosen ghosts
