Summary
Mrs Garth-Bander feels it her duty to invite George and Margaret to lunch, tea or dinner now and then. They are such dreadful bores that the rest of the family usually dodges these occasions. Mr Garth-Bander is a charming man, absent-minded but no fool; the elder son Claude is pompous and priggish, and the younger son Dudley is high spirited and humorous; Frankie, the daughter, is a most attractive girl. Dudley's friend Roger comes to stay with the family, and he and Frankie fall in love and eventually become engaged. Claude is in love with Gladys, the maidservant, and makes very heavy weather of it, but Gladys succeeds in reconciling Mrs Garth-Bander to the match. George and Margaret who have failed to come to tea in Act I and to dinner in Act II, do actually arrive for lunch at the end of Act III, but the curtain falls before their entrance.
