The play is based on a short story published in 1891 and was first produced on stage in 1952.

Charming, gullible Arthur is informed by a palmist that he is destined to commit a murder. Since he does not wish to inconvenience his bride-to-be, he decides to effect the dastardly deed before the wedding. He, therefore, embarks, with the aid of his faithful butler and a passing anarchist, on several attempts to kill his relations.

Much of the dialogue of this fantastical comedy comes direct from the short story but Constance Cox's language is also wonderfully witty as well as appropriate.

The action takes place in the drawing room of Lord Arthur's house in London
