The audience finds itself in an amateur dramatics performance of John Gay’s The Beggar’s Opera. In the next scene, set 3 – 4 months earlier, we watch the arrival of a newcomer in the group, Guy Jones, an agreeable, rather shy, middle-aged widower. As rehearsals progress, we witness some profound interaction among the actors, triggered by their fascination for Guy. As the plot unravels, personal tensions grow, resulting in some hilarious moments.
