Rich men are very attractive. There’s nothing so romantic as the creak in the moonlight of a chequebook opening

Miserly widower and gold merchant, Sydney Lean, receives some sausages by mistake from Philomila Taureaumerde, the wife of a hard up doctor, who with Philomila frequently comes to Lean’s house for cards. He assumes them to be a proclamation of her affection, so he writes her a love poem. He leaves the task of delivering it to his incompetent servant Babi who, of course, fails to give it to her. In the meantime the charlatan Captain Guarderobe, an apparent hero of the French Revolution, is attempting to seduce both Philomila and Lean’s daughter, Isabella. Taureaumerde finds out and all roads lead to The Golden Cockerel Chocolate House, where Fosca, in the guise of a French assassin menacingly stalking the stage with a bomb, is waiting.

“Side-splitting hilarity leading to a shocking and explosive ending” – The Independent on Sunday.
