Theatre sets are notoriously bad at keeping secrets because you can always hear a stage whisper. Make some noise with today’s Groupon: £29.50 for a premium ticket to Abigail’s Party at Wyndham’s Theatre.
An evening of drinks and nibbles in 70s suburban Britain unravels rapidly, unearthing personal grievances, as well as class prejudice. Beverly invites neighbours Angela, Tony, and Susan over for drinks, but exposes the pressure of social occasion and her quietly dysfunctional relationship with husband, Laurence. Susan worries that her daughter, the elusive Abigail, is holding a party at their own home offstage. As the alcohol flows an underlying dissatisfaction is brutally exposed.
About The Show
Spiced with savage humour between savoury snacks and snide advice, Mike Leigh’s sitcom satire returns to the stage at the hand of director Lindsay Posner. Riding a wave of sparkling reviews from his previous endeavours, Posner is bringing the awkward interaction and spiralling neuroses of Abigail’s Party to the West End’s Grade II listed Wyndham’s theatre. The play has a stellar cast, featuring Legally Blonde star Jill Halfpenny, and TV stars Joe Absolom and Natalie Casey.
Customers can get comfortable in premium seats, usually reserved for producers and well-connected VIP types. Just a step-ball-change from Leicester Square station, the theatre is perfectly placed to enjoy all the pre-theatre offerings of restaurants or retail therapies. Three bars on the premises keep cultural thirst quenched, while ornate Victorian surrounds amuse the eye until curtain-up.

Abigail's Party received rave reviews from critics with 4/5 from Time Out, 4.5/5 from LondonTheatre.co.uk, and a 'Must See' nod from The Independent. Reviewers praised the set decoration though special mentions went to the direction and performances.
The task of directing such a well-known play is an onerous one to say the least. But Lindsay Posner delivers an admirable revival which is both faithful to the original and yet contains fresh perspectives. And the cast rise to the occasion too, turning-in truly riveting performances.
– Peter Brown, LondonTheatre.co.uk, May 2012
As Lindsay Posner's finely judged revival makes clear, it's a classic study of material progress and spiritual despair via the recognisable medium of loveless, childless marriage. It's also horribly funny.
