"The most painful hundred minutes in British comedy..." - Channel 4 1977 Romford, Essex: Aspirational hostess-with-the-mostest Beverly Moss is having a ‘do’. There’s cheese, there’s pineapple, there’s pass-agg on a plate, and the gin-soaked cracks are starting to show.
Ice and lemon?
Mike Leigh’s critically acclaimed Abigail’s Party is a darkly funny and squirm-worthy peek at 70s Britain through the window of suburban malaise. Sashay into the living room of upwardly mobile wannabes Beverly and Laurence as they entertain new neighbours Angela and Tony from over the road, and divorcee Susan from No.9.
Featuring: Andi Crown (Go Girls, August Osage County), Simon Vincent (Metamorphosis, Heat), Sophie Roberts (The Weight of Elephants, Wolf’s Lair), Nic Sampson (Black Confetti, The End of the Golden Weather) and Jacque Drew (Shortland Street, Cloud 9).
Directed by Sam Snedden A Vibracorp Production
