INT. FRONT ROOM. MAUD’S HOUSE. BETHNAL GREEN. 1912. EVENING.

...a neat if rundown room, sparsely furnished. In the corner

there is a hearth and several bits of laundry hanging on a

clothes horse close by. MR SONNY WATTS [late 20s] looks up

from his paper.

MAUD:

(hushed)

Is George sleeping?

SONNY:

(nods)

Yeah. Mrs Garston fed him bread and

jam.

MAUD reaches for a kettle, touching it, it’s hot. Pouring it

over the linen, she throws in a wash bar of soap resting

close by.

SONNY (CONT’D)

Are you all right? It’s late.

SONNY quizzical, reaches a hand out, touches the graze on her

hand.

MAUD:

Taylor sent me up to town.

SONNY:

Let me have a look.

MAUD:

It’s nothing... I got caught in a

scuffle. There were a load of those

women shouting...

He reaches for a cotton wool and a bottle of alcohol resting

on the mantelpiece.

MAUD (CONT’D)

..Broke all the windows along the

West End.

Reaching for cotton wool and a bottle of alcohol resting on

the mantelpiece, SONNY gestures for her to sit. A painting of

King George V hanging on the wall above.

SONNY:

I’ll deliver that package for you

in the morning.

MAUD:

Ta.

She winces as he cleans the cut, slowly coming down from the

panic and rush of the last hour.

SONNY:

You coming to bed?

MAUD:

I’m just going to get this done.

She goes over to the bucket of dirty laundry standing by a

window. Then wearily, she starts scrubbing the dirty clothes.

EXT. TENEMENT. NR MAUD’S HOUSE. BETHNAL GREEN. 1912. DAWN.

The still of the street, bar the lone figure of a WOMAN. Her

hands fish in her pocket for a dried pea, she takes aim,

blowing through a long pea shooter at a window above. The pea

taps at the window. The WOMAN moves onto the next home,

blowing the next pea, offering up another morning call.
