When womaniser Graham meets his employee Peter's fiance, he makes a bee-line for her as usual. However, the young lady strays instead to Graham's brother-in-law Leonard, a poetic fumbler who holds conversations with a garden gnome.

Whilst this play has been performed time and time again since first presented nearly thirty years ago, it is still fresh and relevant today. Ayckbourn succeeds by exploring with humour and pathos the relationship between five adults with their own idiosyncrasies. The play leaves you with the feeling that you have spent the evening with familiar friends whose foibles you know and accept.
