You've got me all in a sweat.

Here. Charge.

Harry, you still haven't

answered my question.

Have you arranged with

Lord Rockingham to meet us tonight;

Well no.

What difference does that make;

Have you ever been so bored,

you'd do something you'd regret.

Stop jumping from one thing

to another.

What does it matter

if we do meet Rockingham;

l shan't have anything more

to do with him.

lf you ever invite him to

this house again l shall leave it.


So you'll leave the house,

will you;

-Yes and take the children.

-Oh, you will;

-Where do you think you'll go;

-l don't know but go l will.

You're in one of your moods again.

That's it, isn't it;

What the devil have you

got against Rock;

l will not enjoy

his familiarity any longer.

Why shouldn't he be familiar;

He's my best friend.

Why must you persist

in being so blind.

Your insistence in our

being seen everywhere with him

is making me one of the most

notorious women in London.

Fiddle de Dee Dona.


Yes. l did promise Rock again.

Not don't make a scene.

What have you been doing to Dona;

What's it all about;

Another mood, another impulse.

That's Dona.

But she's angry as sin. You better

go see what's the matter.

Confound the woman that can't

get along with a man's friends;

Come here.

l won't let you get away!


When are you going

to stop this fencing;

There's only one way it can end.

No sense in making Harry think

you're angry with me.

He's too easy going to care.

You never laugh except when you

imply no woman can resist you.

lt amuses me to find

l am invariably right.

-lt is one time you are mistaken.

-Oh but l'm not.

You let Harry bring you

to a place like this to sit

cheek by jowl with these ladies,

the only wife among them.

-Take your hand away.


You think more of your kisses and

have less reason to than anyone.

Show in the ball.

-Harry, please take me home.

-No, l won't.

Rock won a great deal of money

and l want to get it back.


00 of a clear morning!

What's this;

What's going on here;

Hey! Dona!


What is this;



There you are.

Rock is here, wants to apologize.

He says he lost his head.

-Where are you going;

-l'm going to Navron.

We haven't been there in years.

Damp, moldy and full of ghosts.

lt is full of ghosts,

ghosts of a happiness

that is lost.

-l'll try to get it back.

-You've lost your wits.

Perhaps l've just recovered them.

l've been planning a part for you

because you insisted on it.

But l won't play it anymore.

l'm done with this stupid,

futile life we lead here.

And the company you choose to keep.

lf you think l'm going chasing

after you, you're wrong.

-How far have you come;

-From London in five days.

Where be you going;

Navron House, near Elford.

l shouldn't if l were you. They say

pirates come into the river there.


-Cutthroats from here to here.

Come on there!

Navron, my lady.

Hello the house!

l hate old houses my lady.

Tom, you sent a messenger ahead

didn't you;

Yes my lady.

Call out again.

Hello the house!

Ghost and ghouls and things that

go bump in the night. Deliver us.

Welcome to Navron, my lady.

-Who are you;

-William, my lady.

lt smells like a tomb.

l don't remember you. You were

not here when we came last.

No, my lady.

There was an old man here.

l can't remember his name.

l heard he could barely walk.

Where is he now;.

ln his grave my lady.

-And you've replaced him then;

-Yes my lady.

Your accent is foreign.

l'd forgotten Cornish people

speak strangely.

lt is Cornish, isn't it;
