Updated to the stylish 1930’s. The fabulously wealthy Lady Loadstone holds a dinner party to marry off her young niece Placentia Steele, who possesses a large dowry, which is kept in the tightfisted hands of Sir Moth Interest. With a motley assortment of gentlemen dinner guests in attendance, all motivated by either love or money, and a household of unmanageable servants, the outcome is a comic and complex tangle of misunderstandings, mishaps and marriages!
