A houseful of hapless Ayckbourn moral backsliders and incompetents. Thereís Neville, who displays his Englishness by preferring his shed to his wife Belinda - who seeks revenge by late-night stalking Clive the attractive shy novelist visitor while variously pretending to have left the gas on or the freezer lid open. Thereís Harvey, recently retired from nearly getting involved in violence as a security guard and now feasting on TV versions of same while working himself up forÖ well, bad behaviour. Thereís Bernard, whose failures as a doctor include not curing his wife Phyllis (Nevís sister) of her hypochondria, predisposition towards accidental self-harm, ill-concealed fondness for the bottle, or anything really; and as an uncle of subjecting his young audience to annual puppet shows of mind-numbing boredom. Not this year though - the rehearsal is spectacular. 

Clive is in the house as Belís sister Rachelís guest. They scarcely know each other, and Rachelís so repressed your guess would be they never will. Topping up the guest numbers - and stirring the pot nicely - are Nevís not over-bright friend Eddie and his heavily-pregnant (with child number four) wife Pattie.
