The action takes place in the Hudsons’ flat in Barons Court. Isobel, Colin, Jim and Brenda have spent their holidays together for seven years, returning time after time to the same villa in Torremolinos.They have each decided, quite independently, that the time has come for a change. Jim and Brenda are the prime movers in injecting a little spice into the annual vacation. Jim thinks that he and Colin would benefit from the attentions of two lovely young ladies from the office, Doreen and Fiona, and Brenda has her eye on the plumber, Richard. When one says the play was first produced at the Whitehall Theatre, you know all does not turn out as planned!
