When young Tracy discovers she is pregnant, she doesn’t know how to break the news to her solid, dependable mother, to her hypochondriac father or to her boyfriend. Gran, who is permanently ensconced in bed on stage, knows all, sees all and attempts to pave the way for Tracy’s announcement.
Unfortunately, father overhears something he shouldn’t have and jumps to the conclusion that he has but a short time to live. The next door neighbour butts in and, after liberal measures of gin all around, her romantic aspirations begin to surface. Misunderstandings and mishaps abound en route to a riotous conclusion.
