The Plot Summary –
A group of three couples, old friends and all married on the same day in the same chapel, gathers at the home of one couple to celebrate their silver anniversary. When they discover that they are not legally married, each couple initially reacts with proper Victorian horror what will the neighbours think and all three couples find themselves re-evaluating their marriages; hovering closely over the proceedings is the Yorkshire Argus’ alcohol-soaked photographer, keen to record the evening’s events for posterity, and a wickedly destructive housekeeper who is hoping to use the couples’ mortification to her own advantage. In the end, of course, everything turns out well, and the play ends on a happy note
