Setting: A formal gathering in a grand villa on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.

Situation: The Rich family invites a lot of people to their villa to the engagement of their son and the daughter of the Wealthy family. The guests hardly know each other. They entertain themselves by discussing the appearance and character of the people they see around. The host and the hostess circulate and hear what different people say about each other.

Characters:

Card I—II — Christopher and Christine, the fiancés.

Card III—IV — Mr. and Mrs. Rych, the owners of the villa.

Card V—VI — Mr. and Mrs. Wealthy, Christine’s parents.

Card VII—VIII — Franklin and Frances, newly-weds. Franklin is Christopher’s cousin. He owns a textile factory and is often away from home.

Card IX—X — Patricia and Flotilla — two middle-aged single women. They are Christine’s aunts. They never married because they could not find a good match.

Card XI—XII — Stephen and Stephanie, a married couple. Stephen is a distant relative to the Rich family.

Card XIII—XIV — Clement and Clementine, a married couple. Clement is a distant relative to the Wealthy family.
