Mr and Mrs Markham have only one bedroom in their apartment. Against his better judgement, Mr Markham allows his friend, Mr Lodge, to borrow the bedroom for one evening to engage in a romance with Miss Wilkinson. Against her better judgement, Mrs Markham allows Mrs Lodge to borrow the bedroom for an evening with Walter. Against her better judgement, the maid allows the interior decorator to persuade her to spend an evening with him in the Markham’s bedroom. Oh, yes – it’s the same evening!
