Constance Cox has written a light comedy of hilarious fantasy in the Wildean style of elegant wit combined with farcical humour, set in the late Victorian era. Some of the personalities bear a strong resemblance to characters in Oscar Wilde's plays.

Lord Arthur, who is about to be married to Miss Sybil Merton, is told by a palm reader that he will commit a murder sometime in the near future. He decides to get the murder out of the way so he can marry with a "clear conscience". A large supply of elderly relatives, a faithful butler and a helpful anarchist provide a jolly evening's entertainment full of surprises. Don't miss the fun!
