Synopsis:
Simeon Gandalf, one-time thespian, now theatrical agent, settles into Mrs Esme Golightly’s Seaview Guest House, keen to develop the career of his young protégée, Louise Laverne. Despite Simeon’s allegedly innocent intentions towards Louise, the last things he needs are the arrivals in quick succession of his long-estranged fifth wife, seeking a divorce and his long-term mistress, keen to be made into an honest woman. It’s just as well that Simeon’s solicitor is on hand to dig him out of the hole he is digging for himself. Also present, but wishing they weren’t, are a hapless burglar and a member of the local constabulary. Will Mrs Golightly’s no hanky-panky policy hold up and is there really a contract killer on Simeon’s trail?
