MEDDLERS is a farce in three acts. Ashton – a benevolent doctor has a ward named Enid, who calls him uncle but is not related. Ashton thinks she should marry Geoffrey, but does not realise she is in love with him, or he with her. At a Devonshire hotel, complications arise between Ashton, Geoffrey, Enid, her companion Alice, and Langridge, a lawyer who all think everybody is going to marry everybody else. The doctor’s consulting room is turned into a beauty parlour during Ashton’s absence. He eventually returns to his consulting room and throws everyone out except Enid, who chooses Aston to be her life companion.
