  • Setting
    England, 1919-1939
  • Overview
    The action of the play is centred on the fortunes of the lower middle class Gibbons family in the suburbs of south London between the demobilisation after the First World War in 1919 and the outbreak of World War II in September 1939; it is one of very few Coward plays to deal entirely with domestic events outside an upper class or upper middle class setting.
