Jodie Prenger To Star In UK Tour Of Mike Leigh's ABIGAIL'S PARTY

Jodie Prenger is to lead the cast in Abigail's Party, Mike Leigh's  comedy classic which begins next year  in Brighton on 10th January  and tours until  April  visiting  Birmingham, York, Glasgow, Stoke, Woking, Aylesbury, Manchester and Edinburgh.

Beverly and her husband Laurence 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. Welcome to 1970's suburbia and its heady mix of free-flowing cocktails, classic disco and cheese and pineapple sticks. 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.'
