Saturday Party, The

By Brian Clark. Stockbroker Peter Barkworth is made redundant but goes ahead with his planned Christmas party anyway, bringing a different air to the proceedings. A fine study of mid-life, middle-class manners and worries, which led to a sequel, The Country Party, in 1977. In 1979 Clark wrote the series Telford’s Change, telling of the abortive attempts of a very similar main character to set up a new life out of London, only for his wife to have an affair. The central character, Mark Telford, was again played by Barkworth.

Middle class shock! Middle class festivities ruined! Middle class drunkenness!
