From SCENE 1982

The play revolves around the escapades of three couples with hilarious results. When Bob Phillips' affair with his boss's wife, Fiona Foster, is in danger of being discovered by their respective spouses, each attempts to avert suspicion by projecting their own infidelity on to a third couple, the totally innocent and socially retarded Featherstones. The respective spouses, Theresa Phillips and Frank Foster, independently determine to try and help the hapless Featherstones with their supposed problems, but complications run wild when William Featherstone suspects Bob Phillips of seducing his wife.

Sound complicated? It is, and so is the unique staging of the play when a riotous dinner at the Fosters on Thursday is played simultaneously with dinner at the Phillips on Friday with all three couples continuing their merry misadventures and misunderstandings.
