The play is set in quiet Cheltenham, which is the home of the very respectable local MP. A crisis arises when their daughter announces the publication of her first novel ‘Bare Bosom’d Night’ which is set to become a best seller. But family, friends and neighbours suspect they can see themselves in the book!

The action of the play takes place in the lounge hall of Edward Halliday’s house, near Cheltenham.
