Reviews: Abigail’s Party by Mike Leigh

London Classic Theatre are bringing Mike Leigh’s ruthless and achingly funny examination of 1970s British life to The Atkinson, 4-6 May 2023. Abigail’s Party is a ferocious black comedy you don’t want to miss. Book now for the best seats!


Broadway World ★★★★★
Rebecca Birch is hilarious as Beverly, and creates some particularly enjoyable moments with Alice De-Warrenne as the weedy new neighbour Angela, who gets a laugh almost every time she opens her mouth.

The Stage ★★★★
With fashionably flicked hair and an attention-grabbing orange frock, Birch oozes sexuality, upstaging even Bek Palmer’s gloriously gaudy set design.

Theatre, Films & Art Reviews ★★★★
Director Michael Cabot brings together comedy, tempers, and strong sexual tension to the stage through the excellent cast of five.

Winchester Today
A triumph for London Classic Theatre, and one I’ll happily toast with more than one “little top up”. If you’ve seen the play, you’ll know what I mean.

In Common Southampton
Dark, funny and a joy to watch. Like a time capsule from the 1970s with an intriguing, yet uncomfortable reflection on relationships and class in British society.
