15 MAY - 1 SEPT 2012
The totally sold-out, smash hit Menier Chocolate Factory production of Mike Leigh’s Abigail’s Party is transferring to the Wyndham's for a strictly limited 16 week season from 15th May! And we have an exlcusive allocation of top price seats that you can book though us for the run in the West End.
Mike Leigh’s classic play, written in 1977, is set in 1970’s suburbia, where Beverly and her husband Laurence are hosting a drinks party for their neighbours. There is plenty of alcohol, an array of cheesey-pineapple savoury bites, olives and Demis Roussos on the record player. As prejudices are unmasked and tempers flare, the evening can only end in disaster...
Cast includes Joe Absolom (EastEnders, Doc Martin), Natalie Casey (The Invisible Man at the Chocolate Factory; Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps), Jill Halfpenny (Legally Blonde – Olivier award; EastEnders, Waterloo Road), Susannah Harker (Pride and Prejudice, House of Cards) and Andy Nyman (Terrible Advice at the Chocolate Factory, Ghost Stories).
Lindsay Posner directs fresh from a string of plaudits for his production of Noises Off at the Old Vic. Other theatre includes Butley (Duchess), A View from the Bridge (Duke of York’s – Olivier nomination) and Fiddler on the Roof (Savoy – Olivier nomination).
Performances showing as SOLD OUT relate to our allocation only.
Tickets are available through the Wyndham’s Theatre Box Office on 0844 482 5120
