“If you can’t have a laugh and a drink on a Saturday night, when can you?” announces a character in “Ecstasy,” Mike Leigh’s devastating portrait of four working-class English friends carousing in a shabby furnished room in northwest London. Over the course of the party, which consumes the play’s second act, nothing much happens except that the characters drink a lot of beer, smoke a lot of cigarettes, become sloppily sentimental and sing songs. But through a wealth of casually dispensed personal detail and naturalistic ensemble acting of astonishing intensity and nuance, “Ecstasy” cheerily bares the soul of a society on a precipice.
