A TV play based on the Hampstead Theatre production. Beverly has invited her new neighbours, Angela and Tony, over for drinks. She has also asked her divorced neighbour, Sue, because Sue's fifteen year-old daughter, Abigail, was holding a party in their house. Beverly's husband, Lawrence comes home late from work, just before the guests arrive. The gathering starts off in a stiff insensitive British middle class way with people who do not know each other, until Beverly and Lawrence start sniping at each other. Written by

The play got a huge audience on the Sunday night it was screened in 1977. In the UK in those days there were only three TV channels: one (ITV) was on strike and the other (BBC2) was affected by a large storm causing all viewers to tune into the BBC station (BBC1) screening the play. See more
