London, 1800. In the course of just one busy day we are tumbled gleefully into a world of frustrated love, mistaken identity, snobbery and downright vulgar bad manners. Actor and director Alan Coveney has streamlined and clarified the original, somewhat repetitive and over-written script into a fast-moving, side-splittingly funny example of English theatrical comedy.
