Witty, urbane, sophisticated and selfish, publisher Simon Hench is a man of taste and discretion, who is accustomed to keeping himself at a great distance from the messy distractions of his family and friends... He has a problem, though - well, several actually - only he just doesn't know it yet. Settling in for an evening in his lavishly furnished home with his new recording of Wagner's Parsifal, Simon is beseiged by a deluge of unwelcome visitors and his cool demeanour begins to buckle as life finally catches up with him.

Richard E Grant's film credits "Withnail and I" in 1987, and more recently "Bright Young Things" (2003) & "Gosford Park" (2001).
