“ ... one of the best shows I've seen at the People's. Absolutely hilarious and the performances are all wonderful. Go and see.” - audience member
Ever since its inception in 1977, first at the Hampstead Theatre, then BBC television’s Play for Today, then the West End, Mike Leigh’s hilarious take on middle class suburban values has been a cult classic.
Offering a relentlessly uncomfortable yet laugh-out-loud look at strained relationships and awkward social situations, this modern comedy of bad manners has lost none of its power over the years, and remains a wry observation of the gauche, aspirational bourgeoisie.
So come on in, pull up a chair, and let hostess-from-hell Beverly offer you a “cheesy pineapple thing” while she humiliates her hapless husband Laurence, all to a soundtrack by Demis Roussos.
