This bewitching little play centers on the animosity between two siblings and Mrs. Meadowsweet's solution to their constant quarrelling and bickering. Mrs. Meadowsweet and her homely guest house, Respite, seem to mellow garrulous Alice, much to sister Fleur's suspicion. All of the guests seem particularly amiable and pleasant - in fact, without a care in the world. Fleur's suspicions are further aroused by their inability to remember even the slightest occurrence from their pasts. Alice also forgets her grievance against Fleur for stealing, marrying and divorcing Alice's only beau. What is the power that Mrs. Meadowsweet has for enveloping other people's problems? And more importantly, should she be allowed to use it?
