This one-act play is set in the dining room of Sir Charles Summerville’s house during dinner. No Summerville has ever missed dinner in seventeen generations, and Lord Charles is determined that a simple burst water-pipe will not prevail now. As the water-level rises, the family remain stoic, except for a visiting lounge lizard. As they are all marooned on the table and panic rises, the day is saved by Beacham, Lord Charles’ indomitable butler.
