THE SHOW

British playwright Mike Leigh's West End and Broadway smash hit comedy, Abigail's Party, is coming to town...and you're invited!

England 1977. The Queen is celebrating her Silver Jubilee, the punk movement is in full swing, and somewhere in suburban Essex, a group of neighbours are getting ready for a little party!

As the drinks flow, so do the insults, as the hostess from hell humiliates, seduces and dominates her guests (and her husband) before the evening reaches its shocking climax!

Voted one of the best British comedies of all time, Abigail's Party captures the intense pain and absurdity of the lives of a group of social climbers, living in 1970's suburban England.

British comedy at its best - razor sharp, painfully accurate, and deliciously ironic!

This is one vintage party you won't want to miss! 

Presented by Precisely Peter Productions. Directed by John Shooter with a seasoned cast of Toronto-based performers, including:

Anna Hardwick who trained at London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and has won rave reviews for numerous performances.

Dylan Roberts, a star of Mirvish productions, including the North American premieres of War Horse and Lord of the Rings.

Claire Burns, who was described as, "absolutely superb" for her role in This Wide Night.

Cody Ray Thompson, who last seen in Sweeney Todd and was described as "first rate" by critics.

Astrid Van Wieren, a Dora-Award winning actress.

    Are there plans to go for a drink or meal afterwards? If so, the Epicure Café is a nice place to go in the neighbourhood.
