About the play

The play takes place in three bedrooms during one night and the following morning. The cast consists of four married couples; Delia and Ernest, Malcolm and Kate, Jan and Nick, and Susannah and Trevor.
At the beginning of the play, the oldest couple, Delia and Ernest, are getting ready to go out for a meal to celebrate their wedding anniversary; Malcolm and Kate, the youngest, are about to host a housewarming party, to which the other two couples, Jan and Nick and Susannah and Trevor (the only ones whose bedroom is not seen), have been invited. At the last minute Nick has hurt his back and is unable to go. The complicating factor is that Jan used to be Trevor's girlfriend, and after Susannah and Trevor have a blazing row, Susannah finds Trevor kissing Jan. From then on chaos ensues as the couples try to sort out their relationships.
