This bittersweet comedy (for four actors) is the story of a cosmopolitan author, Hugo, caught in his declining years between two women, one being his wife of twenty years, the other, one of his former loves. The former flame, Carlotta, produces some old love letters which she is about to turn over to a biographer. Hugo is dead set against it, for it would compromise his reputation. Carlotta then plays her trump card, which is even more threatening.

Noël Coward (1899-1973) played Hugo in the 1966 London production. It was to be one of his last roles. The play is one of three set in a hotel in Switzerland.
