In 1970's suburbia, Beverly and her husband Laurence are hosting a drinks party for their neighbours. There is plenty of alcohol, an array of cheese-pineapple savoury bites and olives, and Demis Roussos on the record player. But as prejudices are unmasked and tempers flare, the evening seems headed for disaster …

Following a triumphant West End season, Lindsay Posner’s acclaimed revival of Mike Leigh’s classic comedy is touring the UK in 2013.

  • Lindsay Posner’s triumphant production. Brilliant, vintage Leigh.

    The Observer
  • A perfectly pitched revival.

    Financial Times
  • A night of continuous guilty pleasure … a superb production.
