When Canon Pratt and his two curates, Father Brest and Father Loran, lose their exteemed Ms Bottomly, they must recruit a replacement to carry on with the cooking and cleaning. They select Ms Maureen Kettle, aka Moll. She wraps the Canon around her little finger, feeds him well while starving the curates. When it comes to the question on Moll’s pension, more chaos ensues.
The action of the play takes place in the living room of the Parochial House in the town and parish of Ballast.
