The play is set in a seaside town and tells the story of Mrs Clandon and her three children, Dolly, Phillip and Gloria, who have just returned to England after an eighteen-year stay in Madeira. The children have no idea who their father is and by chance end up inviting him to a family lunch.
At the same time a dentist named Valentine has fallen in love with the eldest daughter, Gloria. The play continues with a comedy of errors and confused identities, with the friendly and wise waiter, Walter, dispensing his wisdom with the titular phrase "You Never Can Tell."

An omniscient narrator invites the audience to listen to the dreams and innermost thoughts of the inhabitants of the fictional small Welsh fishing village, Llareggub. They include Mrs. Ogmore-Pritchard, relentlessly nagging her two dead husbands; Captain Cat, reliving his seafaring times; the two Mrs. Dai Breads; Organ Morgan, obsessed with his music; and Polly Garter, pining for her dead lover.
Later, the town awakens and, aware now of how their feelings affect whatever they do, we watch them go about their daily business.
