Award-winning writer Alan Bennett is reunited with director Nicholas Hytner and Olivier Award-winning actress Frances de la Tour, with whom he worked on The History Boys and The Habit of Art.

In the shadow of her former success as a fashion model, the aging aristocrat Dorothy Stacpoole must come to terms with the rapidly deteriorating condition of her estate home. Visits from a nagging relative, eager prospective buyers, and a friend with a shady career create a battle of wits in this comedy about taking things for granted.
