Where Elizabeth slept is a tumbledown country cottage that Norah Fuller has just bought. Her husband is less enthusiastic about it than she is, particularly when he discovers that there are no modern conveniences, not even running water. How he and Norah deal with their uncomfortable acquisition and eventually manage to turn it into a place fit to live, makes a delightful and hilarious play.
Based on the play by Moss Hart and George S. Kaufman. The scene is set in the living room of an old cottage of the Elizabethan period somewhere in Buckinghamshire.
