The action takes place in a woodland glade, during a fashionable Edwardian shooting party, the first given by Lord de Fontenoy since his marriage to the lovely Connie Winsome, late of Musical Comedy. After an opening dance of pheasants, Lady de Fontenoy enters, soon followed by her admirer, Lord Charles Canterbury, who performs a dance for her pleasure, but they are interrupted by the rest of the party, who march round, firing in the air, and then dance off to luncheon. Lord Charles lingers, fires at another bird, and accidentally wounds Lady de Fontenoy. Dragging herself on to the stage, she dies in his arms, to the intense interest of the other guests.
