Abigail's Party was simply story, shrill uninteresting characters and a theater full of cigarette smoke. We counted the minutes until the intermission when we could leave.
Definitely not worth the price of driving to the theater.

Quotes & Highlights

“Mike Leigh’s 1977 comedy is a nasty piece of working-class misanthropy featuring characters who are detestable yet richly complicated… it effectively captures Leigh’s perceptive insights into the lives of ordinary people.” —Los Angeles Times (Critic’s Choice)
“Director Julian Holloway has an impeccable flair for comedy and sly inventive touches in both action and vocal expression that wring every ounce of humor from Leigh’s everyday language… (an) excellent cast.” —CurtainUp
