The action of the play takes place in the East End of London. Time. the present
(Shirley Eaton appears by courtesy of 'London Films)

Rickie and Fay are in love. They step from London's East End of the present into a future in which he sees himself as a business man with his own office and in which she sees them living in a "nice house with proper things like cups with some flowers on". In a second-hand clothes shop Fay sees a dance dress. "If you had that dress you would look as lovely as a film star, and if a fellow I know sees you he might put you on the pictures". The dress costs five pounds. That night Rickie brings Fay her dance dress.
