Trouble abounds at the Weddington's country estate and just who is who and what is what is quite the farcicle mystery. The Weddington's attempt to rule the estate in classic fashion is complicated by Lord Weddington's forgetful nature and Lady Weddington's proclivity for fainting. Jeeves, the Butler, does his best to serve their every need, assisted by the Cockney Maid and George, the underbutler. However, things are never quite as they seem in this farce.

The plots twist and turn, keeping your audiences guessing, and laughing!
