ABIGAIL'S PARTY AUDITIONS
In March 2014 we will be presenting Mike Leigh's iconic 70s play, Abigail's Party. Probably best known for the television version which starred Alison Steadman, the play is set in the home of mis-matched couple Beverley and Lawrence who are hosting a small drinks party for new neighbours Angela and Tony and Sue, whose teenage daughter, the eponymous Abigail, is having a party of her own and has banished her mother from the house. Among the G & T's, chees and pineapple and Jose Feliciano records marital tensions begin to surface as the play's broad comedy takes on a slightly darker feel.
The cast of two men and three women are all a delight for any actor to play, so if you'd like to be one of them why not come along to the open auditions on Thursday 5th December at the Public Hall starting at 8.00pm? For more information or just to register your imterest give us a call on 01621 892404.
We have been delighted by all the wonderful comments from our audience, both in person and via the various social media sites. This was the first play by Peter Gordon that we have presented, though it may well not be the last as at least one more is on our short list. The six-strong cast all put in sterling performances but a special mention must go to Lucy Parrett and new member Jack Dobinson who both had to play two characters: their own and their mother/father when younger (if that makes sense - if it doesn't you should have come to see the play!!).
