No institution, political view or tradition is safe in this masterclass of a comedy.

Within the pristine walls of his private psychiatric clinic, Doctor Prentice is interviewing a new secretary. Geraldine wants the position but seems underqualified and uncertain about her parentage. Mrs Prentice appears, flushed and in urgent need of a drink, following an illicit encounter with Nick Beckett, blackmailer and bell boy at the Station Hotel.

In the meantime, Doctor Rance, a Government Inspector, and Sergeant Match, a policeman, arrive amidst increasing chaos with searching questions of their own.
