Janet has just been appointed Shadow Minister for Health and invites some friends around to her house to celebrate. She is joined by her husband Bill along with her waspishly cynical best friend April, April’s partner and professional life coach Gottfried, Bill’s oldest friend Martha, Martha’s younger partner Jinny, and Tom, an unhinged and chemically-enhanced banker who bursts in to the party looking for his wife. Any upbeat atmosphere is soon destroyed when Bill, reputedly a sterling supporter of Janet’s political ambitions, makes a sudden announcement that shocks everyone present.
