It is a light-hearted, almost farcical, comedy which revolves around the mother’s deep anxiety and attempts to avoid scandal after she confuses two men (both called David) and accidentally sets up her daughter with ‘David Hoylake-Johnston’ (who has a reputation as a philanderer) instead of ‘David Bulloch’ (who she believes to be the perfect match for her daughter). A play for 5f & 3m, first performed at The Cambridge Theatre London with a cast that included Wilfred Hyde White, Celia Johnson & Anna Massey.

A name is written in pencil before the main text – some pen markings in the ‘property plot’ section at the end of the book. Otherwise a little worn but overall in good condition.
