This play is kind an odd one. We start off following an upper-class British family at the Cairo Hilton in 1926. The whole thing feels a bit like a parody of Agatha Christie. Soon, someone in the hotel is murdered, and Shuffle and Sixpence, who are apparently famous amateur detectives, are on the case.

It's very quickly apparent that something weird is going on. Not only are our heroes Sapphire and Steel masquerading as Shuffle and Sixpence, but they seem to have forgotten that it is a masquerade.
