Janet has just been appointed Shadow Minister for Health and has invited some friends around to celebrate. Her dazed husband seems happy enough to see razor-tongued April, but struggles to check his intolerance of flagrant new-ager Gottfried.

Next to arrive are Martha, described by April as 'a first-class lesbian and a second-rate thinker', and her wife Jinny, but things seriously derail when unhinged and chemically-enhanced banker Tom bursts in looking for his wife.

Dinner always appears to be on the cusp of being served but never quite arrives.
