Brian Redman is a former tennis star and minor celebrity running a successful sports franchise business. His assistant Beatrice Lanceley is young, ambitious and fancies him. Another employee and long-time friend Peter Cross still harbours affection for Brian's wife Angela. She is the focus of the play, a former actress now housewife who feels that the vital years of life are passing her by.

Angela's growing disquiet, particularly concerning Brian, precipitates a series of mounting crises. Her complicated road to eventual self-realisation involves all characters in a variety of farcical and dramatic confrontations.
