USA and England in the early 1900s

This romantic “twenties” musical embodies all the light-heartedness and gaiety associated with the period.  It is essentially a love story, centering around three couples, and, as with all the best romances, ends happily.  In love with Tom, and seeking escape from a forced marriage to Mr Wendell-Wendell, Sunny stows away on a liner leaving for New York, on which Tom is travelling with his fiancée Marcia. On realising that she will be refused entry to America, Sunny arranges to marry Tom’s friend, Jim with understanding that they will divorce as soon as she has her entry permit.  Jim agrees, but is worried about the effect on his English girlfriend, Weenie.  After many problems, Sunny and Jim realise that they love each other, and in the final scene at the Hunt Ball, Weenie and Mr Wendell-Wendell agree to marry, and Tom and Marcia announce their engagement.
