Steven Toast has made a career faux pas by electing to star in a new controversial West End stage play. The play is considered so outrageous, that Toast is frequently attacked by appalled members of the British public.

Recently divorced, Toast now stays with his friend Ed Howzer-Black and Ed's elderly mistress, the agoraphobic Goodhouse.

Toast is asked to audition for long-running television series Summer Time Murders. However, the producer has been imprisoned for racial chanting on the set of his own production, so Toast has to audition for the part of a gay corrupt detective during prisoner's visiting time.
