The story mainly flow around the relationship between Charlotte and Alice. Sometimes it is good. Other times a bit stormy. Charlotte envies ability to succede professionally and attract more desireable guys. However Alice has deep rooted insecurities about confronting those who offend and or control her.
Other parts of this story focus around insecurities of the male actors: Des, Jimmy, Josh, Van, and even the prima donna nightclub owner, Bernie. Des seems to have a running line how he confesses to women that he is gay to get their sympathy and a hopeful sexual escapade. Jimmy is oh so worreid about making impressions upon his boss and potential clients at his advertising agency job by trying to get them into the trendy night club where Van is all to happy to keep out such elements.

The varying insecurities can be a bit trying sometimes. However, the general adaptation with the disco music as a backdrop certainly paints a scene which many people certainly have faced. It succedes in many dramatic ways.
