Abigail's Party : AND Goose-Pimples, Paperback

Abigail's Party : AND Goose-Pimples Paperback


Mike Leigh's 1970s classic play "Abigail's Party" focuses on an evening of domestic hell in the guise of a suburban drinks soiree.

While teenager Abigail parties a few doors away, the pretentious Beverly and her estate agent husband, Laurence, entertain their neighbours - Abigail's mother, Susan, ex-footballer, Tony, and his wife, Angela.

But as the alcohol flows, tensions in the hosts' barely functional marriage emerge and their obsessions, prejudices and petty competitiveness are ruthlessly, and hilariously, exposed. "Goose-Pimples", meanwhile, is easily as sharp and uncompromising.

This time, the action focuses on ambitious casino croupier, Jackie, and Saudi businessman, Muhammad, who meet - and misunderstand - one another spectacularly.
