New England, 1898: The Prescott Family is Boston. In that bygone golden age, Patriarch Charles presides over both his shipping line and family with a sure and strong hand, while wife Jocelyn is feeling her authority usurped by her powerfully minded mother-in-law, Augusta. Their children, Marietta, Aurora, and Barton find themselves trying to make their way in a constantly changing world - filled with social upheaval and technological advancements. The Prescotts' house staff goes about their duties under the supervision of the taciturn butler, Williams. Effortlessly integrating historical events into its narrative (including the second running of the American Marathon - later renamed the Boston Marathon), and filled with intrigue, warmth, and drama writ large, the Colonial Radio Theatre invites you into the Prescott household for an evocative, unforgettable depiction of Boston life as lived by those who set the pace. Williams has set an extra place for you at the table - won't you join us on Beacon Hill?

    " I am a great fan of the PBS series Downton Abbey, and when I heard on Sirius radio a snippet of this radio series I was hooked. Unlike Abbey, this takes place in Boston during the late 1800's, and like Downton Abbey it has a real upstairs downstairs feel to it. The rich who love upstairs have lives very different than their loyal servants who live downstairs. This is a very enjoyable series with lots of plot twists and great characters. You might even learn some history along the way. I recommend it. "
