Affinity
AffinitySet against the ominous backdrop of a Victorian prison, AFFINITY is both a Gothic ghost story and poignant account of forbidden love with an unexpected sting in the tail. Following the death of her father, Margaret Prior decides to volunteer as a visitor to the female inmates of Millbank, one of London's most notorious gaols. Among Millbank's murderers and common thieves, Margaret finds herself increasingly fascinated by one inmate, the enigmatic spiritualist Selina Dawes. Selina is serving time for the assault of a young girl through a malevolent spirit during a séance. Initially sceptical of Selina's gifts, but sympathetic to the plight of this beautiful and seemingly innocent girl, Margaret finds herself dispensing guidance and friendship on her visits. But soon it is Margaret herself who is on the back foot, thrown by Selina’s piercing insight into her own character and predicament. Pressed by her domineering mother to marry, yet repulsed by the advances of a man who sees himself as the perfect match, Margaret finds Selina awakening feelings in her she has been struggling to suppress. And soon things start to happen – impossible things – which suggest Selina may indeed be telling the truth about her ability to communicate with and command the dead… Bringing vividly to life a twilight world of séances, shadows, unruly spirits and unseemly passions, AFFINITY builds a powerful romantic mystery which will keep audiences guessing until the startling conclusion.
