I see almost every production here and it is one of my favorite small theater companies. The acting was great as usual and the set was exceptional as usual. However, I... continued

Acting was brilliant. Set was stunning...in the first half. But the play falls apart a bit in the second half. Even genious directing and acting couldn't quite pull it through.

I didn't care for the script - it didn't go anywhere. It was a slice of dysfunctional life, the end. Kudos to Susi Damilano who killed it in the lead roll. The part was made for her. The actor playing Tony overacted.

Funny, enjoyable show. The American actors did a great job with their British accents.

The only part about the show that I didn't like was the ending...which I won't give away.

Nice older venue, easy to get to and ample parking options nearby. Food and drink are allowed in the theater! The production was fun -- nice set and good character development with some sharp dialog.

A darkly hilarious, British kind of Death of a Salesman. The dialogue was riveting, laugh out loud funny, as well as poignant and wince inducing. The actors were beyond... continued

The script wasn't great, a farce about socially inept people. The ending was completely out of synch with the rest of the play. While the acting was generally... continued

Fabulous acting, well directed, great set and a very interesting play. Keeping up SFPlayhouse signature style of something you can talk about afterwards.

A very enjoyable and entertaining play, Abigail's Party displays the fine talents of five actors. I enjoyed the play and recommend it. I enjoyed all the performers, and especially liked (yes, thank you!) the performance of Julia Brothers as Susan.
