The Swan Theatre Company presents

Abigail's Party
By Mike Leigh
Directed by Lyn Lockyer

Monday 9th to Saturday 14th May

Mike Leigh's most famous work has endured for 32 years, remaining as popular as ever.

'It still hits a nerve about the way we live. It's real even though it's apparently a heightened and comic play. It's a reflection of the realities of how we live on a several different levels. It's about aspirationalism and materialism, love and relationships. Like much of my work, it's about the disease I call "the done thing" - basically, keeping up with the Joneses.' from an interview with Mike Leigh, the Observer, 27th September 2009.

Curtain up at 7.45pm

All tickets sold. If you want to take a chance there may be returns at the box office immediately before a performance. BUT there is no guarantee!
