Janet has just been named Minister of Health, the culmination of a career. She reunites with her husband Bill some close friends, but the party takes an unexpected turn.
British director, screenwriter, composer and film actress Sally Potter returns to the excellence of her Orlando of 1992. A skilful production, a top cast, a music perfectly suited to the plot and a humor as sharp as a Razorblade make this theatrical-theatrical game a jewel at once funny and cynical, bringing together some politico-intellectual bumps entangled in their certainties and their well-thought.
Closed in black-and-white to allow complete freedom of narration, The Party plays on the unity of time and place and develops with talent all the theatrical effects, from vaudeville to drama.
