Popular 1970s comedy Abigail’s Party is coming to the Brook in Soham, early next month.
The Viva Theatre Group is taking on the production and it is set to star David Moat (Laurence), Sarah Dowd Crosby (Bev), Rania Kurdi (Sue), John Bedford (Tony) and Kirsten Martin (Angie).
Abigail’s Party opened in April, 1977, at the Hampstead Theatre, in London, but is mostly known for the arranged recording produced at the BBC as a Play for Today, produced by Margaret Matheson.
A spokesman for Viva said: “In this character-driven satire you will be introduced to Beverly and Laurence who have invited over their new neighbours, Angela and Tony, for a visit, along with Sue whose daughter is holding a party at the house that night. As the tension between these characters grows the evening heads towards disaster.”
The play is running from June 4-6 at the Brook, with tickets priced at £10, with concessions at £8.
