Ecstasy

Mike Leigh
 
Jean works in a garage and consoles herself with drink and perfunctory sex. Jean's insistent neighbour Dawn and Dawn's Irish labourer husband, Mick, and Mick's spineless mucker, Len all join her in a funny, drunken, sad celebration of their mutual affection and bleak lives.

Review
'His strength is in his satirical observation of English tribal customs ... Like Ayckbourn, he uses farce to expose the dire consequences of emotional cruelty: the result is both consistently funny and extremely disturbing.'  Michael Billington, Guardian

Smelling a Rat

Mike Leigh
 
As characters are forced to hide in wardrobes to avoid unexpected visitors, the comedy frantically approaches farce, but the drama is continuously underscored by Leigh's trademark ability to create conversations that are both painful and hilarious in their banal accuracy.

Also available from Mike Leigh: Ecstasy
