“A dinner party lasts two hours. Marriage has been known to last two years.”

A comedy of (bad) manners from the 1920s, in which two wealthy women who want to get married have chosen their prospective husbands, but insist on trying the merchandise on before making the deal. Lonsdale’s biting wit sparkles as his characters match and mismatch in this once-hugely popular play, not seen in DC for decades.
