Ecstasy $12.99

Mike Leigh

Published by Nick Hern Books

3 Male 3 Female

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

'It is all unmistakably Leighish - authentic, excruciating and true' ~ Time Out

'Mike Leigh has a wonderful gift for conversation so rock-bottom-boring that it is hilarious' ~ Observer

'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
