George is an American composer working at the Savoy Theatre in London. Maud is the thoroughly English Lady Marshmoreton, a beautiful socialite who lives in a castle with a ha-ha and a drawbridge. They really shouldn't have met because George needs to complete his musical and Maud needs to marry most urgently, and already has someone totally unsuitable in mind. Luckily Maud's fierce aunt, Lady Caroline, has a solution - she's going to lock her lusty charge in the tower. Uplifting and wildly funny, this musical comedy is a tribute to English love with all its eccentricities. Based on a novel by P.G. Wodehouse, with songs by George and Ira Gershwin, A Damsel in Distress
