An English manor house is the inheritance left to lovely young Lady Judith Elliot, along with three stubborn ghosts. A rich American lady not only doesn't object to the "psychic forces" but actually insists on buying the house to prove to the world that they do exist. The spirits refuse to put in appearances at the time of the seance. Lady Judith meanwhile falls in love with the American lady's nephew. A mere mortal who pretends to be a materialized spirit is exposed as a hoax by the angry ancestral spirits. The exposed mortal friend, however, begins exorcising the ghosts behind Judith's back, and the play turns into an ingenious and hilarious romp.

Characters

CASTING

6m, 5f

ETTA - an elderly servant who has not been paid for years, but doesn't mind so long as she can serve Lady Judith.
MISS POTTER - a stern, stiff-lipped schoolmistress.
ARCHIBALD ANDREWS - Judith's fiance, a nice-looking, serious-minded, slightly stuffy young Englishman.
LADY JUDITH ELLIOT - a lovely girl in her early twenties. She is clever and charming, yet proud and determined.
MRS. MILLICENT MALONE - in her fifties, thinks of herself as the motherly type, but is actually as ruthless as they come.
HENRY MALONE - her nephew, is a handsome, brilliant young physicist, with a dry with and, unfortunately, a completely closed mind.
MAT - the General's faitful stable boy, who happened to have died with him, and has served him ever since, though not very well. He is a mute, and not too bright, but does his very best to please when not up to mischief.
LADY HORTENSE ELLIOT - was an intimate of Elizabeth, and has something of her Queen's manner, with a stern face and a sharp tongue. Nothing has ever stood in her way for long.
BRIGADIER GENERAL SIR THOMAS ELLIOT - who was a Royalist supporter against Cromwell, is something of a here, something of a soft-hearted fraud. He fancies himself the head of the family, but is a delusion.
LADY PENELOPE ELLIOT - is a ravishing beauty in her teens, impulsive, yet tremendously appealing. She would have led a gay life in the court of Charles II, had she lived.
MR. HAWK - a short, fat, cigar-smoking American Indian.
