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

When Beverly puts on a record of "Love to Love You, Baby", it is not Donna Summer
singing. Her version of the song had been banned by the BBC because it featured "orgasmic moans". Instead the play used a cover version by Clare Torry
