Abigail's Party Returns To London This March

Abigail's Party, possibly writer and director Mike Leigh's most famous and acclaimed comedy play will return to the west end at the Menier Chocolate factory with a run from March 2nd this year with tickets now on sale online.

Abigail's Party is set in quiet suburbia in the 1970's where Beverly and her husband Laurence are hosting a small drinks party for their neighbours. There is plenty of booze, an array of nibbles, cheese-pineapple savoury bites and olives, and Demis Roussos on the record player. But as the drink flows, prejudices are unmasked, tempers flare and the evening seems to be heading for disaster.....


Mike Leigh's classic comedy Abigail's Party will be directed by Lindsay Posner, who recently directed Noises Off at the Old Vic. Her other credits include: Butley, A View from the Bridge, and Fiddler on the Roof. The role of the infamous Beverly in this new production will be played by Jill Halfpenny, who won an Olivier Award in 2011 for her role as in Legally Blonde as Paulette. Jill is also well known for her TV roles on EastEnders, Waterloo Road and Blue Murder



Theatre tickets in London to all performances and productions at the Menier chocolate factory are available to book securely through both Theatre Tickets London and BmyConcierge
