In the first Act, we find the Charles family at home at their mansion. There are the twins, Hugo and Annabelle, their younger brother Nigel, their mother Lady Charles, the Butler and a Nanny. They are all standing round a life support machine that houses Sir Robert Charles. Sir Robert has had a severe heart attack a while ago, he is the Defence Minister and second-in-command of the country. The family have come to the decision that on his birthday they will turn off the machine however they are stopped by an alleged reporter.
In the second Act we find that someone has switched off the machine and a detective has now to find out who has murdered Sir Robert. Unbeknown to them all, the Prime Minister has been killed in a car accident, so that now a dead body is running the country. From this point on the whole play is turned on its head into a Pythonesque farce.
