Jodie Prenger leads the cast in Mike Leigh’s groundbreaking comedy classic as Abigail’s Party UK Tour comes to a theatre near you in 2019.
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.
One of the UK’s great leading ladies Jodie Prenger who wowed audiences in Oliver, Tell Me On A Sunday, One Man Two Guv’nors and Fat Friends is back as Beverley.
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. It’s not to be missed.
Abigail’s Party UK Tour will be directed by Sarah Esdale.
