Abigail’s Party
by Mike Leigh
directed by Rory Farrell

Travel back to the 1970s as The Butt Drama Circle bring Mike Leigh’s classic play to the Balor stage.

It’s a time of cheese, pineapple and olives on sticks, loud paisley prints and Demis hpw Roussos. Aspirational hostess Beverly Moss and her husband Laurence are hosting a drinks party. They have invited their new neighbours – married couple Tony and Angela along with their recently divorced next door neighbour Susan who has been banished from her house as her teenage daughter Abigail is throwing her first party.

The evening starts out awkwardly with Laurence arriving home late from work much to Beverly’s annoyance. Tensions rise as the drinks flow and inhibitions are lost. Sniping, bickering and drunken dancing ensue as the evening unravels and ultimately descends into utter chaos.
