  • Abigail's Party

    Mon 3 - Sat 8 Apr

    Amanda Abbington stars in Mike Leigh’s undisputed classic, Abigail’s Party. It’s 40 years since the appalling Beverly first put Donna Summer on the turntable, stacked a plate with little cheesy-pineapple sticks, plied her guests with alcohol, cigarettes and Demis Roussos and slow-danced her way across the shag-pile into theatrical history.
