The story begins with a group of friends pondering the disappearance of a woman known to the reader only as Miss Finch. The group, with Miss Finch in tow, attended a subterranean circus spectacle called the "Theater of Night's Dreaming." At one point Miss Finch is taken away by an ape-like creature to see the Cabinet of Wishes Fulfill'd. The group sees her once more before her unusual departure.
