A hilarious comedy of manners, class, misunderstanding and the must-have red herring in the British tradition.


Following the death of Sir Geoffrey Corkham (Bt), there’s to be an auction of art works and furniture. This is to meet the substantial Inheritance Tax for which the estate is liable. Preceding the auction of the high value possessions, an open day has been arranged, where the public may visit the house and grounds. The open day includes an auction of low value, sundry items, the proceeds of which are to be donated to charity. All the events have been instigated by Melissa Corkham, the inheritor of the Corkham estate, and executor of Sir Geoffrey’s will. It’s a hot summer day, refreshments are being served in a marquee in the grounds. A tearoom has been set up adjoining the great hall, in case of unseasonable weather. This is where our play is set.
