The English countryside in Shropshire, 1922. Welcome to Woodplum House, the ancestral home of the prestigious Lilywhite family in the charming rural village of Stoke-on-Stump! Lord Nigel Lilywhite is hosting a lovely garden party preceeding the afternoon wedding of his only daughter Emmeline, with only a few choice intimates in attendance before all the guests show up for the ceremony. But in this silly comedy of manners, the polite social occasion will be turned upside down by lovers' quarrels, raffish pranks, and scandalous secrets of misspent youths. There may even be a mystery or two to solve! Join these genteel aristocrats as what should be a civilized afternoon tea erupts into high-spirited comedic escapades! A 2-hour light, comedic game in parody of the works of P.G. Wodehouse, with no actual characters harmed. Expect roleplay-heavy gameplay with a high reliance on schtick and absurdity, with some interpersonal puzzle-solving.
