Guy Jones is a mild-mannered flunky for an electronics firm who finds himself transferred to the British seaside town of Scarsborough.

Guy tries out for a amateur opera company's production of The Beggar's Opera produced and directed by the slightly insane Welshman Dafydd.

Dafydd is in a constant rage because of his resentment at having to deal with amateurs and his ranting and raving dwindles the number of his cast members, resulting in Guy's part in the play growing larger and more important.

Soon Guy find himself in the passionate embraces of Dafydd's frumpy and frustrated wife Hannah.
