A play about loneliness, togetherness, longing, warmth and love, from the author of Abigail's Party. 1979. The winter of discontent is over and Margaret Thatcher's regime is about to transform the country. Old friends come together in a Kilburn bedsit for a drunken celebration of their mutual affection. As funny and compassionate now as when it premiered over thirty years ago, with a cast including Julie Walters, Stephen Rea and Jim Broadbent. The play was revived by Mike Leigh for Hampstead Theatre in 2011 and marked the first time the award-winning author and director returned to one of his past plays.
