Two Hungarian playwrights - the darlings of the 1920's Broadway theatre scene - are en route to New York via ocean liner for the opening of their newest musical comedy. In just four days, they must convince their impetuous young composer not to quit, untangle the web of suitors surrounding their leading lady and write a fabulous ending for their new show - not to mention · brushing up the beginning and the middle, with only the assistance of their inexperienced but enthusiastic cabin steward. Confusion ensues, slapstick abounds and hilarity prevails in this zany adventure by the British master of razor-sharp wit and verbal gymnastics, playwright Tom Stoppard.
