After his father's death Hugo Gloster, remains a single man, but his father's will states that in order to realize his full inheritance, he must marry a suitable bride. Will he meet the girl of his dreams at tonight's dinner party, or will jealous siblings thwart his plans?
Despite Hugo's many proposals of marriage, he has yet to get an acceptance and is desperately seeking to improve his suitability as a husband by learning new skills, acquired from an array of coaches and tutors, whom he employs at great expense.
He now feels that his time has come, and has invited a number of single young ladies to the estate in order to select a suitable fiancée. Needless to say, his potential net worth has encouraged their attendance, but it appears that despite his best efforts, not all of them consider him a prime catch, and the presence of his siblings adds an air of conflict to the proceedings.
