Costume notes
Hilarious full-length English farce in the best Whitehall tradition. Single country-house living room set.
Julia Benning is a pushy young businesswoman who is about to inherit her late uncle's company. However, first she needs to pass the scrutiny of her Aunt Celia. That includes assessing whether Julia's newly-acquired fiancé is going to be an asset - something he manifestly is not. Julia's solution is to borrow a substitute fiancé in the form of her friend Pippa's womanising brother. Throw in a lachrymose nurse, a jobbing solicitor and a couple who get the wrong address for their swingers' party, and Celia's house is set for a busy weekend.
