Amidst the seaside air of Brighton, the antics at the Wicksteed home are a satirical mess of passion. Family, friends and strangers become entangled in the sexual satisfaction of the “corpus” (body) – all except the innocent maid Mrs Swabb, the observer of all ill-judged lunges into lust and general wrong-doings. Think fake breasts, dropped trousers, unfortunate mistaken identities, and one strong family motto: He whose lust lasts, lasts longest.
