Jodie Prenger to star in Abigail's Party UK Tour

Jodie Prenger leads the cast in Abigail’s Party, Mike Leigh’s groundbreaking comedy classic which wreaks havoc at Theatre Royal, Glasgow, from Monday 4 - Saturday 9 February as part of a UK tour.

The story set is in 1970s suburbia and its heavy mix of free-flowing cocktails, classic disco and cheese and pineapple sticks. Beverly and husband Laurence who are throwing a party for their newlywed neighbours, Tony and Angela. Joining them is highly strung Susan who’s been banished from the party of her teenage daughter, Abigail. As tensions rise and tempers flare, the sheen of respectability is torn away by the warring couples with hilarious and potentially disastrous consequences.

Mike Leigh’s iconic Abigail’s Party is one of Britain’s most celebrated comedies and was described by The Guardian as ‘One of the greatest plays about the human condition ever written.’

Jodie Prenger said: Abigail’s Party is a true British classic and a real bucket list part for me.  I’m thrilled to be involved in something so wonderful.  Can’t wait to get started.’
