Description

When Maud Marsh flings herself into George Bevan's cab in Piccadilly, he starts believing in damsels in distress. George traces his mysterious traveling companion to Belpher Castle, home of Lord Marshmoreton, where things become severely muddled. Maud's aunt, Lady Caroline Byng, wants Maud to marry Reggie, her stepson. Maud, meanwhile, is known to be in love with an unknown American she met in Wales. So when George turns up speaking American, a nasty case of mistaken identity breaks out. In fact, the scene is set for the perfect Wodehouse comedy of errors.

Professional reviews

"When Maud Marshmoreton throws herself unexpectedly into George Bevan's cab in London, he falls instantly in love with her. However, Maud is in love with a mysterious American she met in Wales. Maud's aunt, Lady Caroline Byng, wants Maud to marry her stepson, Reggie. But Reggie is in love with his father's secretary, Alice. When George turns up at the Marshmoreton estate with an American accent, confusion ensues. Jonathan Cecil reads this comic tale of mistaken identity and love triangles with humor and impeccable timing. Although the American accents are sometimes wobbly, the British actor has the perfect rhythmic cadence to bring this cheery British trifle to life. A.B. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
