Wonderful dialogue and larger-than-life characters make this farce every bit as funny and enjoyable today as when it was first written. The play follows several days in the life of successful and self-important theater star Garry Essendine as he gets ready for a tour of Africa while coping with a growing mid-life crisis. As he prepares for the trip, Essendine must fend off aggressively seductive women as he also tries to placate both his long-suffering secretary and his estranged wife, all while dealing with an intense avant-garde playwright. Based loosely on Coward's life, the playwright called it "a series of semi-autobiographical pyrotechnics," and played the role of Essendine himself in the play's original run.
