New York City
“Enlarge! Enliven! Enlighten!” Miss Lettice Douffet can’t help but exaggerate the dreary history of Fustian House, one of the least stately of Britain’s stately homes. But when she’s caught creating outrageous stories about the house’s historical past, she incurs the wrath of Miss Lotte Schon, an inspector for the Preservation Trust. Neither woman will meekly step aside as their battle rapidly turns into a devilish friendship and a series of escapades that make Lettice’s original fancies pale in comparison. This hit comedy by the author of Amadeus is delectable.
