The Hound in the Left-hand Corner
BRIT, the Museum of British History, tries hard to combine tradition with modemity. Tonight there's to be an extravagant banquet to celebrate the opening of its much touted exhibition ELEGANCE: guests will dine on Lobster House of Stuart, Beef Plantagenet and Berries Tudor Rose. Present will be a wayward chef, an overambitious Director, a vainglorious Chairman, a restored Gainsborough portrait of a lady dressed as Puck...Add backbiting, sexual Innuendo, even romance - it's all highly suitable for a Midsummer Night. And just what is wrong with that Hound in the Left-Hand Corner?
