Act One sees two well dressed men debating the virtues of the European Union Fisheries Commission. As the scene progresses, the debate becomes more heated and the two men can only resolve their differences with a sword(fish) fight. The sceptical man wins, but his victory is a Pyrrhic one because he is dying of bovine tuberculosis.
The curtain comes down for an interval, during which the audience can only buy heavily-salted snacks and no beverages.
Act Two is like Act One but funnier.
