A bitter comedy from the part of Great Britain that is so dangerously similar to our home …

Or otherwise: there was once a father, who had two daughters and one mother-in-law. His wife has fled to London. The mother-in-law is vulgar, yet extraordinarily spontaneous. One of the daughters does not know what to do about herself, another dates a Marxist, and the third falls in love with an actor who has arrived to shoot a film about the poet Yeats. A standard British family, in whose life — tragic and comic alike — it is not difficult to recognise that of ourselves.
