The guest list: perky and rich Jean, her cranky and very pregnant sister Sinclair, ditzy-blonde Tracy Ann, and new neighbour Diane, who’s made quite a career selling Tupperware. The mix of personalities and martinis consumed lead to absurd high jinks plus revelations of secrets and insecurities. It is set in the US Midwest in 1968.
