- Robert, without money of his own, a failure as an actor but a very ingenious stage-manager, cossets and supports his rich, ambitious actress wife in every way possible, but she, believing him to have often been unfaithful to her, announces she is turning him out of her life and their home.
- Unknown to him she also concocts a complicated plot to obtain grounds necessary for divorce, involving the use of an apparent psychiatrist, in reality a private detective.
- Robert, however, calling on his skill at stage-managing effects, works out a bizarre means of teaching them a lesson, after which he intended "walking with dignity" out of her life.
- He did not know, however, of the scheming young student Herman's part in the plot - and the final moments of the play give several grim twists to events as the "little game" becomes stark reality.
