Two respectable Victorian gentlemen, Leaf and Haggard, appear to make their living providing the exposition in the first scenes of creaky old plays, but they've been doing this for so long that they seem to have forgotten which play they're in. Then tragedy strikes: it is possible that in the future, exposition will be done away with altogether, and all plays will start in the middle of the action. Horrified, they try to cope with this threat to their very existence in this very funny play.
