BWW Reviews: ABIGAIL'S PARTY, Curve Theatre Leicester, October 24 2014BWW Reviews: ABIGAIL'S PARTY, Curve Theatre Leicester, October 24 2014
by Jenny Antill (UK Regional)

(10/25/2014) - I remember studying Abigail's Party in school and watching the 1977 television Play For Today version, based on the original Hampstead Theatre production. The dialogue is colloquial and there is nothing complex about the content. It is a situational drama crammed full of every day occurrences, stressing on the naturalness of conversation e.g. awkward pauses, of which there is a lot of them! The characters and strength of the acting ensure the success of the writing and those involved in the Curve's latest production do just that.
