One of the late Edgar Wallace's great loves was horse-racing, and his books are peopled with many of the characters who go to make racing the colourful and unpredictable world it is. Tonight's play, which takes its name from the Racing Calendar, is set in the easy luxurious world of racehorse-owners, Ascot, and country houses in 1929 - since when, it should be pointed out, the Jockey Club Rules, upon which some of the argument depends, have been altered considerably. Edgar Wallace was never an author to leave the surface of good living placid for long, and when Garry Anson, whose life is ruled by his horses, and to a lesser extent by his feelings for beautiful Lady Panniford, allows his two loves to overlap, Wallace snaps up his chance of building up an intrigue which threatens the futures of all the principal characters.
