Abigail's Party by Mike Leigh 27 Oct 2019 Tickets now available -click for details

Bartholomew Players present: "Abigail’s Party" by Mike Leigh

If you remember cheese & pineapple served on a cocktail stick, flared trousers and feather-cut hairstyles, orange and brown swirly décor and houses costing £21,000 then “Abigail’s Party” will be a trip down Memory Lane for you! A funny, nostalgia-filled snapshot of married life in the 1970’s, this suburban situation comedy of manners by Mike Leigh is a satire on the aspirations and tastes of the new middle class that emerged in Britain at this time.

Director Gareth Hammond says “I have always wanted to put on this play. It had such a powerful effect on me when I saw it in the 1970s. As the original cringe comedy, it still resonates today with its recognisable characters and their bourgeois attitudes.”

As usual, we are partnering with a local Charity for our Supper Show, Eynsham Pre-School, an Ofsted-rated “Outstanding” Pre-school, caring for and educating children between the ages of 2 and 5 years old. They will assist us in organising the evening in return for a share of the profits. We look forward to seeing you!
