In the 1920's, in the English countryside, the Bliss family lives in a state of artistic, bohemian untidiness, which is made even more chaotic when each of the four members of the family invites a guest for the weekend... without actually getting around to telling anyone else. The sudden influx of outsiders, and the Bliss family's way of dealing with their own quirks and their guests', drives Noël Coward's farcical comedy through a weekend of word games, romantic temptations, blazing rows, and desperate attempts to survive another moment of Bliss-filled havoc!
