The straightlaced parents of a young boy who has, until now, shown no interest in the opposite sex, are surprised when he comes home with androgynous girl/boy from the West Indies. This is a comedy of manners, somewhat akin to Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, but in place of a black man, we get a black transgender woman (or male-born androgyne; it is unclear). As such, it was and is way ahead of its time. From a play called "Girlfriend" by David Percival. Sir Michael Hordern's performance as George Mason is alternately understated and over-the-top, but most of all howlingly funny.
