It's 1929, and the members of the famed Round Table are performing a play in the lobby of New York's Algonquin Hotel to commemorate the tenth anniversary of their first luncheon there.

Acting as a Greek chorus, the Round Tablers present At Wit's End, the story of how New York Times theatre critic Alexander Woollcott's love for Jane Grant and rivalry with her husband Harold Ross provided an essential spark to the birth of The New Yorker magazine. The artists, celebrities, and wits of the Round Table (Frank Adams, Tallulah Bankhead, Robert Benchley, Marc Connelly, Edna Ferber, Helen Hayes, George Kaufman and Dorothy Parker) portray themselves, and assume the various small roles (as Tallulah says, "the little people, darling") that play into the story.
