Six London friends, whose lives and work are overshadowed by a demanding film producer, flee the country for a weekend to escape his clutches.

Safely ensconced in a hotel in Amsterdam, the uneasy equilibrium that has existed between them is joyously exposed as the alcohol starts to flow.

John Osborne's funny and moving account of friendship won the Evening Standard Best Play of the Year Award in 1968. The play was revived by the Donmar Warehouse, London, in September 2003.
