When Janet is appointed Shadow Health Minister she decides to throw a small dinner party for some friends and acquaintances. What follows is a comedy wrapped around a tragedy, as what starts out as a celebration ends with blood on the floor. 

The Party is a curt and deftly acted chamber piece high on comedy and savagery about frustrated idealism and how little it takes to make society fall to pieces. The whole thing is enjoyably absurd.
