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 cramp Angela is crippled by at the end of the play was originally genuine. During rehearsals for the stage play Janine Duvitski
was suddenly struck down with cramp and doubled over, Mike Leigh
ruthlessly cried "Keep Acting" and the whole thing ended up remaining in the stage and TV play. See more
