The play takes place in the home of Belinda and Neville Bunker who have family and friends staying with them over the Christmas holiday. Neville is a successful retailer and owns shops selling televisions and electrical goods whilst Belinda is a busy housewife. There are children in the house too but we never see or hear them. Also staying for Christmas are Phyllis (Neville's highly strung sister) and her husband Bernard, a doctor, Belinda's Uncle Harvey and Belinda's sister Rachel who is waiting for her friend Clive to arrive. The final guests staying over Christmas are Eddie (a friend and ex-employee of Neville's) and his pregnant wife Pattie.
