Join The Pond Theatre Company and The Barrow Group as they put the hilarity of Mike Leigh’s play, ABIGAIL’S PARTY, on the New York stage. A satire on the aspirations and tastes of the new middle class that emerged in Britain in the 1970s, the play captures epic denial in London suburbia. Even though penned in 1977, Leigh points out, “It still hits a nerve about the way we live.”
Beverly and Laurence invite their new neighbors Angela and Tony over for a welcome drink. They are joined another neighbor, Sue, whose 16-year old daughter Abigail is having a party down the road. They drink throughout the evening and as they comically and tragically lose their guard, chaos ensues. Like so much of Mike Leigh’s brilliant work, this play reveals human frailties in a beautifully revealed, hilarious, and remarkably stirring way.
With a stellar group of actors (Colleen Clinton*, Lily Dorment*, Nick Hetherington*, John Pirkis* and Sarah Street) directed by TBG’s Co-Artistic Director, Lee Brock, this will be an incredibly fun way to spend your evening.
