The year is 1977, the place somewhere in suburban England. While fifteen-year-old Abigail is throwing a raucus party, the adults have gathered down the street to party on their own. As the night goes on and the drinks are poured, the night goes horrifically and hilariously awry, laying bare the obsessions, prejudices, flaws and aspirations of the guests. Developed through improvisation by the original cast, thirty years later Abigail's Party has become a classic comedy of manners and a scathing satire that still offers timely social commentary and forces us to question our assumptions about relationships with one another.
