Welcome to the 1970s, where there’s enough cheese and pineapple sticks and cocktails for everybody to enjoy.
Mike Leigh’s groundbreaking comedy classic Abigail’s Party rolls out the red nostalgia carpet as Beverly and her husband Laurence throw a party for their newlywed neighbours, Tony and
Joining them is highly-strung Susan who’s been banished from the party of her teenage daughter, Abigail.
It’s 70s suburbia and its a heady mix, but as tensions rise and tempers flare, the sheen of respectability is torn away by the warring couples...with hilarious and potentially disastrous consequences.
The iconic play is one of Britain’s most celebrated comedies.
Jodie Prenger, who recently starred in the one-woman tour of Shirley Valentine and played Kelly in Kay Mellor’s Fat Friends tour with music written by Nick Lloyd Webber, leads the cast as
the show heads to the Orchard Theatre in Dartford.
She also starred in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Tell Me On a Sunday and has appeared in both Annie and Les Miserables in Dubai Opera Theatre.
Jodie said: “Abigail’s Party is a true British classic and a real bucket list part for me. I’m thrilled to be involved in something so wonderful. Can’t wait to get started.”
Abigail’s Party will be at the Orchard Theatre, Dartford from Monday, April 1 to Saturday, April 6. To book tickets visit orchardtheatre.co.uk or call 01322 220000.
