Back to Limmeridge PERCIVAL GLIDE

Here use this pen
Sign here and here
And we'll be done

UNCLE

There is just the small question of my future
Limmeridge house has been my home for many years
You have no plans to sell, Sir?

PERCIVAL GLYDE

No immediate plans

UNCLE

Then my future here is assured?
I'm old sir and infirmed

PERCIVAL GLYDE

I am well aware of that

UNCLE

So you have no plans?

PERCIVAL GLYDE

I leave straight from here for a long sanget on the continent. My seat on the train is booked.
Sir, your signature.

UNCLE

Her estate is yours
Spend it wisely Glyde

PERCIVAL GLYDE

Thank you kindly sir

UNCLE

Tragic that she died
Stay and have one drink
In memory of my niece

PERCIVAL GLYDE

I have to catch my train

UNCLE

May she rest in peace

PERCIVAL GLYDE

But sir
I can't miss the train

UNCLE

Don't haunt me in this way
Brother I have done your dirty work for far too long
For years i've kept your secrets
I've brought up your children
They weren't mine
This has brought me ill health, unhappiness
That's your legacy!
I wanted no part of this

SERVANT

You can't go in there!

HARTRIGHT

We have some pressing questions!

UNCLE

Explain this rude intrusion!

HARTRIGHT

You must tell us who's Anne Cattrick!

MARIAN

Uncle you have got to help us!

UNCLE

I don't know what you speak of

HARTRIGHT

There's no more time for secrets

MARIAN

Long ago her mother worked here

HARTRIGHT

We won't leave without an answer

UNCLE

What presumption! Know your place sir!

HARTRIGHT

ALl along you've known the truth sir

MARIAN

Good God Anne Cattrick is dead sir!
She lies in Laura's grave

UNCLE

What nonsense you speak of!
It is Laura who is dead
God rest her soul!
My niece is dead

(Music begins to play on the piano. It is Laura's song)

What witchcraft is this?

LAURA

Come believe your eyes Uncle
I was placed in the asylum
Anne went to my grave
If you ever loved me Uncle tell me who she was

UNCLE

Your father loved the ladies
Anne's mother was a pretty one
You can guess the rest
Though you and Anne were born a year apart
You could easily have passed for twins
Save you were wanted
And she was not

LAURA

She was my sister?

UNCLE

Yes

LAURA

And Glyde killed her

UNCLE

What?

HARTRIGHT

He won't get away with this

UNCLE

I'm afraid he already has
He's on his way to the Continent
Your estate has already passed to him
He left just before you arrived

LAURA

What is this secret my sister spoke of?
Uncle do you know?

UNCLE

I assure you
I know nothing more
I'm sorry

LAURA

Then it is over
Glyde has won

HARTRIGHT

We can catch him
We can hit him off
He'll need to take the London train

MARIAN

I'll go with you
Laura you rest here

LAURA

No! I'll never rest again
We can stop him
I have a plan!
Anne shall haunt him
One last time
