Description

The MAC cordially invite you to the party of the year (1977), for the play everyone remembers from the decade fashion forgot.

Abigail's Party is one of the most iconic stage plays of the 20th century, thanks partly to its legendary 1977 'Play for Today' production on BBC1. From a time when the height of urban sophistication was cheese and pineapple on a stick, served nonchalantly on a Lazy Susan comes a tragi-comedy about social climbing, prejudice and fear of not doing 'the done thing'.
The writer and director Mike Leigh called his play 'both a celebration and a lamentation of how we are', because this isn't just a play about 1970s Britain, it's a peek into the frustrations and struggles endured by everyone who has ever floundered and grasped their way through life, attempting to ensure everything about them and around them is 'the done thing'.
The MAC is proud to be producing Mike Leigh’s version of the play.
