Mike Leigh’s s classic play ‘Abigail’s Party’ focuses on an evening of domestic hell in the guise of a suburban drinks soirée While teenager Abigail parties a few doors away the pretentious Beverly and her estate agent husband Laurence entertain t. A hilarious satire on 1970s nouveau riche attitudes Leigh's play suffers from its own brilliance it satirised the 1970s so perfectly that it's totally out of place in any other era And while Alison Steadman has broken free of the character she made her own any other actress will suffer by comparison with her Great though it is I wouldn't recommend anyone putting it on stage in the 21st Century
