In this madcap comedy George and Charlotte Hay are fading stars of the 1950s. At the moment, they’re playing ‘Private Lives’ and ‘Cyrano De Bergerac’ in rep in Buffalo, New York with five actors. On the brink of a disastrous split-up caused by George’s dalliance with a young ingénue, they receive word that they might just have one last shot at stardom: Frank Capra is coming to town to see their matinee, and if he likes what he sees, he might cast them in his movie remake of ‘The Scarlet Pimpernel.’ Unfortunately for George and Charlotte, everything that could go wrong does, abetted by a visit from their daughter’s clueless fiancé and Charlotte’s stage-manager mother who hates every bone in George’s body.
