The action of the play takes place in and around the Starkadder's Farm, Howling, Wessex with diverting visits to Hautcouture Hall and the Church of the Qivering Brethren. The plot revolves around Flora Poste, a sensible woman who, recently orphaned, goes to live with her eccentric relatives at doom laden Cold Comfort Farm. The farm is bleak, chaotic and dirty; Flora likes everything to be tidy, pleasant and comfortable, so she does her best to alter her surroundings and encourage those around her to greater things. Flora strides into the melee determined to restore order, arrange marriages and cast some light into their darkness. This she does to great comic effect.
