When Jason Donovan, an unsuccessful playwright announces that he is about to write a play about angels, his friends question his judgement. He then explains that the play is about the kind of "angels" who finance theatre productions. His partner, Joyce, wants him to return to work as a schoolteacher, so that they can afford to have a baby. Seamus, the architect partner of Libby, Joyce's journalist friend, is infertile. Having learnt that Adam Donovan, a philanderer and famous producer, is Jason's cousin, Libby interviews him for her magazine, with a view to securing his help in in staging Jason's play. He agrees to do so, helps Seamus obtain an important building commission, seduces Libby and makes her pregnant. Joyce also becomes pregnant. Jason's play achieves success. Ebenezer, Jason's internet friend and fellow playwright, delivers a eulogy of Adam, who while hardly deserving the conventional description of an angel, has provided wonderful entertainment for millions of people all over the world.
