Abigail's Party

A co-production with ATG Productions and Smith & Brant Theatricals, by special arrangement with the Theatre Royal Bath.

 

Stage and TV star Jodie Prenger, Coronation Street and Emmerdale favourite Vicky Binns and Daniel Casey, best known as DS Gavin Troy in Midsomer Murders, lead the cast in this ground-breaking comedy classic!

"The iconic cult classic... had its packed-out audience roaring with laughter from the get-go... Still a sensation over forty years on."

- Birmingham Mail ****

"Director Sarah Esdaile has done a fine job to strike a balance between creating something original and satisfying audience expectations... Prenger is just one part of a perfectly-cast ensemble."

- James Garrington, The Review's Hub ****

"Sarah Esdaile's sparkling production.... is pure genius."

Beverly and husband Laurence are throwing a party for their newlywed neighbours, Tony and Angela.  Joining them is highly strung Susan who’s been banished from the party of her teenage daughter Abigail. Welcome to 1970’s suburbia and its heady mix of free-flowing cocktails, classic disco and cheese and pineapple sticks. As tensions rise and tempers flare the sheen of respectability is torn away by the warring couples with hilarious and potentially disastrous consequences.

 

Mike Leigh’s iconic Abigail’s Party is one of Britain’s most celebrated comedies; beloved by audiences, it thrills and delights in equal measure.

Come on Sue-just a little top up!

Abigail's Party played a 2019 UK tour between January to April.
