Monty Navarro (Pinkham) has just received some really great news from his late mother's lifelong friend Miss Shingle (Carr)! He's a long-lost member of a noble family and could become the next Earl of Highhurst. There are only eight minor issues, namely the other relatives who precede him in line for the title. So Monty does what any ambitious, highborn gentleman would do: he sets out to eliminate them one by one, all while juggling his mistress (O'Hare) (she's after more than just love), his fiancée (Worsham) (she's his cousin, but who's keeping track?), plus the constant threat of landing behind bars! But it will all be worth it if he can slay his way into Highhurst Castle...and be done in time for tea. Each of the eight heirs perilously standing in the way of Monty's fortune are played by Jefferson Mays, in one of the most breathtaking, whiplash-inducing performances ever attempted on the American stage.
