This 'lost' play by Patrick Hamilton is a Victorian psychological thriller last seen on the stage in 1945. The play is the second of Hamilton's to feature Inspector Rough, who first made his name in one of the author's best-known works, Gaslight. Miss Ethel Fry, the titular governess, has taken a position in the Drew household where she quickly begins to manipulate all those around her. Things become murkier when the family discover that their baby son has been abducted, presumed taken by gypsies, throwing the entire house into chaos and suspicion. As the family try to adjust to their devastating loss, the eagle-eyed Inspector Rough arrives on the scene out to prove that this case is far from resolved.|5 women, 6 men, 1 girl
