The action of the play occurs in a small ward in a small general hospital.
Who is George and where has he come from? To Mr Smith, he is a 'proper gentleman' but to the hospital staff he is both an embarrassment and a time- consuming problem. For George only exists in Mr Smith's imagination. Until George is disposed of, Mr Smith does not appear likely to recover and the hospital staff cannot cease ministering to an invisible patient in the empty bed next to Mr Smith. The doctors and nurses plot to kill off George . . .
