    A farce in which well-to-do northerners Fred Magill, his wife Gladys and sister-in-law Cissy Dodd rent Michael Quinn's cottage in the West of Ireland. Seeking to rehearse their new folk play in authentic surroundings, they disguise themselves in peasant costume and attempt to pass as locals. In the process, they encounter Clarence St. John, a Dublin playwright who unknown to them is also under disguise, wanting to add local colour to his work. The two parties valiantly keep up their respective pretences until St. John and Cissy fall in love, and their respective schemes are revealed to the satisfaction of all.
