Madame Chiffage

It's London in the 1920s(or thereabouts), and Bertram & Amy are invited to a seance held by Madame Chiffage - sounds like it might be entertaining - but just how much does La Chiffage actually know?
A short, affectionate spoof on 20s mystery genre

Director Biography - Julia Warren

When not fighting plots and chasing bunnies, Julia is mostly to be found in theatres, generally messing about with words and tripping over props (of which she is an avid collector). Building a clockpunk world. Gothic also appeals. You have been warned.

Can be found @JuliaFWarren (where you can expect occasional bouts of nonsense; pretty frequently actually). Domiciled at And at
