    What's it about?

    Welcome to suburban Britain in 1977. Beverly and Laurence have invited their neighbours Angela and Tony, and Sue, round to their house for a party.
    Except it’s not really a party, it’s drinks, nibbles and snobby comments as Beverly tries to be a model of middle class behaviour and taste. Whilst the cheese and pineapple sticks are circulated and awkward pauses are filled with sneaky cigarettes, the real party is happening back at Sue’s house, where her teenage daughter Abigail and her mates are having the time of their lives.
    As the teenagers’ punky reggae party filters in from outside, the cracks begin to show back at Beverly’s. For all their fancy things, she and Laurence can barely hide their dislike of each other, and hard-working, upwardly mobile Angela and Tony are struggling with the mortgage.
    Mike Leigh’s comedy masterpiece has been a hit on stage and tv and looks at what happens when we forget to be true to ourselves. Directed by Amanda Huxtable, this production looks at what happens when we create ‘us’ and ‘them’.

    Abigail’s Party is part of the Change Makers programme, funded by Arts Council England to support the development of Black, minority ethnic and disabled cultural leaders.
