    Bernard Farrell 

  • Synopsis

    A frantic account of a dinner party involving two upwardly mobile young couples. Everything seems to be going according to plan until it emerges that another guest has been invited - one who is not entirely welcome. The party goes rapidly downhill from there with hilarious, if sometimes frightening, consequences.
