It’s It’s 1912 and Britain is in a time of peace.
Despite the Titanic’s tragic voyage earlier in the year, the mood is optimistic and to celebrate the coming of age of his youngest daughter, Lord and Lady Clynton of Godlinton House have opened their doors for a house party on a scale quite unlike any other. With fine wines and a banquet fit for the king himself being readied, the servants have been talking of little else for weeks.
However, nestled in the heart of this distinguished family lays a secret; one which has threatened to expose everyone to scandal. As the guests arrive for the celebrations they discover that the butler, Clarkson, is dead! Someone in the house is responsible but who could it be?
Lord Clynton – The Earl of Glentham
Strong and masculine, with a stiff upper lip and a perfect set of tails, Robert Clynton is the head of the household and a proud, educated man.
Lady Clynton – American Heiress and wife of Lord Clynton
Aristocratic and demure, Cora Clynton is always perfectly coiffured and has only a very mild accent and a very genteel manner.
Phyllis Clynton – The youngest daughter
Excitable and enthusiastic, Phyllis Clynton is out to make the most of her debut into society and is dressed in the latest fashion from London.
The Dowager Countess – The mother of Lord Clynton
The matriarch of the family and proud of her status, Violet Clynton is conservatively dressed and nothing passes her keen eyes.
Will Barrow – First footman
Appropriately dressed and very polite Will Barrow is used to blending in to the background any social event.
Matthew Clynton – The up and coming heir to the estate.
Well turned out although somewhat uncomfortable in high society, Matthew is making the most of the evening and is suitably attired for the occasion.
