First look at Amanda Abbington in Abigail’s Party

Abigail's Party - 27 Mar-1 Apr

She’s starred in the likes of Sherlock, Mr Selfridge and Cuffs, and now Amanda Abbington takes on one of the best-remembered characters of the 1970s.

She’ll be here from 27 March in Mike Leigh’s masterpiece Abigail’s Party, stacking a plate with cheesy-pineapple ones and slow-dancing across the shag-pile rug to the sound of Demis Roussos.

Joining her will be a talented cast, including Ben Caplan (PC Noakes in Call The Midwife, who recently completed a run in Sunny Afternoon, the Kinks musical, in the West End).

We’ve got a first look at the orange and brown décor, floral dresses and impressive facial hair of Abigail’s Party, ahead of its arrival here this month:
