Abigail's Party heads for Liverpool

Published: 21 February 2019

Liverpool Playhouse welcomes the touring production of Mike Leigh’s Abigail’s Party from March 25–30.

Featuring Jodie Prenger in the role of Beverly, the production was made famous by the BBC Play for Today series in 1977. The classic comedy follows Beverly and her husband Laurence as they host a party for newly-wed neighbours Tony and Angela. Joined by highly strung neighbour Susan—banished from the party of her teenage daughter Abigail—the group revel in free-flowing cocktails, disco classics and pineapple and cheese on sticks.

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