Relative Values: November 1980

By Noël Coward

'Relative Values' programme cover

Nigel Marshwood is to marry the actress Miranda Frayle. No one seems happy about this - especially Moxie, maid to Nigel's mother Felicity.

Moxie reveals that Miranda is her younger sister and she won't stay in what will now be her sister's household. Peter, Felicity's nephew, comes up with an idea to promote Moxie to being his aunt's companion - so that she will no longer be a servant.

Crestwell the butler says that they should pretend that Moxie has inherited a large sum of money. Nigel and Miranda arrive. Miranda does not recognise her own sister who is now elegantly coiffured and dressed. Miranda talks of her childhood in the East End, her abusive father and the fact that her elder sister is an alcoholic.

Moxie is appalled. They were born in Sidcup and had good middle class parents.
