As the young people play tennis and speculate on what their parents may provide for them in the way of flats, cars and allowances, Charles Battle is having a bit of trouble at the Stock Exchange. What happens and how he reacts will have a life-changing effect on both friends and family.

A delightful and apt comedy by one of Britain’s most popular twentieth century writers, who once outsold all his brilliant contemporaries, including Joseph Conrad and Robert Louis Stevenson. Before the age of 30, he had four plays on in the West End at the same time.

Running time: approximately 2hrs 30mins, including 2 intervals
