Flora Draycott, an exuberant and impulsive widow, lives with her sister, Joyce, writing books and raising funds for charities. But to make real money she secretly, under a male nom de plume, writes a highly scandalous novel based on her late husband’s drunken experiences. When a possible publisher arrives unexpectedly, she doesn’t admit authorship, so blurts out that the author “is ill upstairs”. This leads to a mass of complications as the sisters get involved in the highly coloured life they invent for him. The audience is kept very amused and intrigued as they watch Flora and Joyce endeavouring to extricate themselves from the many complicated situations which arise.
