From its first performance in 1984, this light-hearted British comedy has been a favourite with audiences and critics alike. It concerns a middle-aged family man, Charles, who has had a brief affair in New York with an American girl. Back in England now, he believes he covered his tracks by not giving her his address or phone number. But she manages to find him anyway and appears one evening on his doorstep! Keeping her true identity from his wife, Margery, throws Charles and his brother (who aids in the deception) into a series of complications made worse by the arrival of the brother’s wife. And, to complicate matters further, it appears that Margery herself is keeping a romantic secret.
