It’s August in the Barsetshire village of Worsted, and Richard Tebben, just down from Oxford, is contemplating the gloomy prospect of a long summer in the parental home. But the numerous and impossibly glamorous Dean family – exquisite Rachel, her capable husband and six of their nine brilliant children – have come for the holidays, and their hostess Mrs Palmer plans to rope everyone into performing in her disastrous annual play.
