"In NoŽl Cowardís classic comedy, matinee idol Garry Essendine (Garber) sits at the center of his own universe," according to Roundabout. "While Garry struggles to plan his upcoming trip to Africa, his elegant London flat is invaded by a love struck ingenue, an adulterous producer and a married seductress, not to mention Garry's estranged wife and a crazed young playwright. Just before Garry escapes, the full extent of his misdemeanors is discovered and all hell breaks loose."
