Lyrics: Anthony Newley, Leslie Bricusse

Book: Anthony Newley, Leslie Bricusse

The much-put-upon Littlechap attempts to improve himself by marrying his boss's daughter, ultimately having affairs with three other women, all played by the same actress who plays his wife. The Leslie Bricusse-Anthony Newley musical uses a circus setting.
