However, when Algernon decides to pose as Jack’s alter-ego – a brother from London – for a weekend in the country, he finds that Jack’s cousin Cicely (Dorothy Tutin) has developed an infatuation with the mysterious brother; and now she can meet him. Meanwhile, Algernon’s cousin Gwendolyne (Joan Greenwood) is also staying for the weekend and knows Jack as his alter-ego. Confused?
