The Barn Theatre, Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire

Abigail’s Party

10th September 2015 at 20:00:00

A hilarious evening of domestic hell in the guise of a suburban drinks soirée

The obnoxious Beverly and her career-driven, joyless husband entertain the neighbours… As the alcohol flows, tensions emerge and their obsessions, prejudices and petty competiveness are ruthlessly and hilariously exposed.

A satire on the aspirations and tastes of the new middle classes that emerged in Britain in the 70’s.  Keeping up with the Joneses in this painfully funny iconic play.

This production sold out in St Albans earlier this year, and we are delighted to open our doors to one last opportunity to see the piece and welcome another local company with this excellent play. Great stuff!
