Short Synopsis: Notable for its composite set of two over-laid living rooms allowing for simultaneous action in two places, How The Other Half Loves centres on three couples. Fiona Foster and Bob Philips are having an illicit affair unbeknownst to each other's partners and their cover-story involves helping an unaware third couple, the Featherstones, leading to farcical misunderstandings and events.
