Struggling artist Brindsley Miller and his fiancée Carol are having a party with the aim of impressing Carol’s bombastic father, Colonel Melkett, and his millionaire friend. They have borrowed (without permission) the furniture and effects of a neighbor, the fussy Harold Gorringe, to make the flat more presentable. Before the guests arrive the main fuse blows, plunging the flat into darkness; only we, the audience, can see what is happening. A collection of colorful characters arrives including Brindsley’s true love, the caustic and willful Clea. Brindsley must return Harold’s furniture before the lights are restored, and keep Carol and the other guests in the dark about Clea’s arrival.
