Michaelmas Week 7
The Peterhouse Freshers Play 2014
It's suburban London, the seventies, and Beverly has invited new neighbours Tony and Angela over.
Thrown into the mix is Beverly's long-suffering, olive-loving husband Laurence, and divorced neighbour Sue, whose daughter Abigail is having a party next door. As alcohol flows and conversation stagnates, the excruciating, Freshers' Week-level awkwardness reaches a devastating climax...
For three nights, Peterhouse's historic theatre will be hosting this most unusual party, and you're invited.
You will laugh, you will cringe, and you will cringe some more as Mike Leigh's classic comedy comes to Cambridge's classiest college.
"And you were enjoying yourself?"
"Yeah. We were all enjoying ourselves, weren't we?”
No character in 'Abigail's Party' could honestly answer "Yes" to that question, but you can.
