Frederick Lonsdale’s 1920’s ‘butterfly of a play’ is a delicious comedy of manners from one of the twentieth century’s forgotten playwrights, filled with wonderfully eccentric characters and cracking one-liners.

A spoiled, rich widow takes her prospective husband away to her remote Scottish estate for a month on approval, pursued by an impoverished aristocrat and his wealthy and beautiful young admirer. When the staff abandon them to fend for themselves, tempers become more than a little frayed, and as the weather worsens, they are left with a dwindling supply of brandy and cigars and only each other for company.
