Jodie Prenger leads the cast in Abigail’s Party, Mike Leigh’s comedy classic which began a major UK tour in Brighton this month and arrives on the Opera House Manchester stage from April 8 to 13.

Joining her as Beverly are Vicky Binns as Angela, Calum Callaghan as Tony, Daniel Casey as Lawrence and Rose Keegan as Susan.

Leigh’s iconic play remains one of Britain’s most celebrated comedies. It was first devised and directed in 1977 and opened in April 1977 at Hampstead Theatre. A recording was arranged as a Play for Today for the BBC and transmitted in November 1977.

Prenger said: "Abigail’s Party is a real bucket list part for me."
