Let us take you back to a spring evening in April 1977: Abba are number one in the charts, Red Rum wins the Grand National for the third time, the Queen begins her Silver Jubilee celebrations and 15-year old Abigail throws a party. To escape the loud music and teenage angst Abigail’s mum, Susan takes refuge with Beverly and Laurence, her middle-class neighbours. As the gin and tonic and Bacardi and coke flows, good-will, clichés and small-talk turn into quarrels, squabbles and chaos as tensions rise and the Suburbia dream is shattered.

From the pen of Mike Leigh Abigail’s Party will take you to a simpler time and have you chuckling into your Pina Colada.
