ABIGAIL’S PARTY, by Mike Leigh
British suburbanites Laurence and Beverly are entertaining their new neighbors, Angela and Tony as well as Susan, whose teenage daughter, Abigail is having a party to which Susan has been dis-invited.
“Abigail’s Party” may be the most uncomfortable comedy in New York right now, and I’d sit through it again in a second. Here, humor and unpleasantness are intertwined, and that leads to laughs — many, many laughs — that are part gleeful and part appalled – Ken Jaworowskinov, New York Times 2016
Abigail’s Party was first presented at the Hampstead Theatre in London on April 18, 1977. It was directed by the author.
