The play has a cast of six: Frank and Fiona Foster, Bob and Teresa Phillips, and William and Mary Featherstone. The well-to-do Frank and Fiona have a polite and emotionally distant relationship, while Fiona is in a secret affair with Frank's employee Bob, whose marriage with Teresa is very stormy; Teresa feels neglected by him, and her suspicions are heightened by ghost phone calls. The contrast between the nature of the Fosters' and Phillips' relationships is heightened by the visual difference in their respective living spaces and furnishings, both of which co-exist in the same space on the stage. Asked where they have been, both Bob and Fiona lie to their spouses that they have been comforting, respectively, William and Mary Featherstone, each of whom is alleged to believe their spouse to be having an affair.
