The delightfully witty plot spotlights a few days in the life of the successful light comedy actor, Garry Essendine, as he prepares to travel for a touring commitment in Africa. Amid a series of events bordering on farce, Garry has to deal with younger women who want to submit to him, placate both his long-suffering secretary and his estranged wife, and cope with a super-contemptuous young playwright determined to change him into a more "serious and consequential" artist. As Garry has just turned forty, he's fending off all these attacks just as he senses his oncoming mid-life crisis. Coward himself originated the role and called the wildly amusing story "a series of semi-autobiographical pyrotechniques." All is played out by actors on a glamorous high style art deco suite in splendidly lavish high fashions. A feast of laughter and high spirits!
