“The Making of a Lady” Returns to WITF Passport
Based on the forgotten novel by celebrated writer Frances Hodgson Burnett (The Secret Garden), it tells the story of the well-born, educated but penniless Emily (Lydia Wilson).
While working as a lady’s companion for Lady Maria (Joanna Lumley), Emily meets her employer’s wealthy widower nephew, Lord James Walderhurst (Linus Roache). After accepting his practical but unromantic marriage proposal, a lonely Emily looks to build a friendship with Walderhurst’s handsome nephew and his beautiful Indian wife.
While Emily is increasingly contented with her life, not all is what it seems – and Emily has no inkling her life is in danger.
