Mike Leigh's 1979 play set in London. Jean, Dawn, Mick, Len, Roy and Val - the six characters in Ecstasy - are as different as any people can be. But what they all have in common is an instinctive need for survival and sustenance. In sharing the burdens of their world and socio-economic climate, they work, live, lust, love, drink, smoke, worry, cheat, abuse, dream and, occasionally, have a laugh. They could be any six people found in any town or inner-city at any time.
