Effervescent best describes this contemporary drawing room comedy. Set in the madcap household of glamorous and neurotic Art critic, Cornelia Thorndike, her German maid and her somewhat sane secretary. The comedy bubbles along with a delicious assortment of intruders, passers by and long-and-short term lovers; all of whom invariably bump into each other in the wrong place at the wrong time.
