Middle Age Spread centres on Colin (Grant Tilly), a college teacher whose promotion to principal coincides with a number of personal crises.

Not least are a widening girth, which has him jogging round the streets at night, and a tentative first-and-last affair with a much younger teaching colleague, Judy (Donna Akersten).

At a dinner party he hosts, with his increasingly sexually-disinterested wife, Elizabeth (Dorothy McKegg), the morality and values of their tight-knit circle of friends are played out with deadly accuracy.

To his credit, director John Reid, one of the actors in the original stage presentation, has created a film that is not just a pale adaptation of the play.
