Description Follows a few days in the life of successful and self-obsessed actor Garry Essendine as he prepares to travel for a touring commitment. Amid a series of events bordering on farce, Garry must deal with interruptions from numerous women who want to seduce him (including the stagestruck young girl, Daphne Stillington, and the devious Joanna Lyppiatt), placate his long-suffering secretary Monica Reed, avoid his estranged wife Liz Essendine, be confronted by a crazed young playwright named Roland Maule, and overcome his fear of his own approaching fortieth birthday.
