About the Show
Written and directed by Phoebe Roberts
London, England, 1883 – Mary has been Mrs. Hawking's protege for two years now, learning the ropes of championing the downtrodden women of London with the intent of one day taking her mistress's place. When Mrs. Hawking is injured in the line of duty, the press for Mary to master the trade becomes all the more urgent as a dancer in the St. Petersberg ballet approaches them to solve the murder of the prima ballerina. But as the team hunts down the truth, Nathaniel's determination to be of use in his aunt's work has consequences he doesn't expect, and Mary begins to realize the heavy cost of taking on the life Mrs. Hawking leads.
