All Saints’ Elton Amateur Operatic Society (AOS) are putting on a production of Mike Leigh’s ‘Abigail’s Party’. Performances will be from Thursday 2nd September till Saturday 4th September 2021.
‘Abigail’s Party’ is a play for stage and television, devised and directed in 1977 by Mike Leigh. It’s described by All Saints’ AOS as: “a suburban situation comedy of manners – and a satire on the aspirations and tastes of the new middle class that emerged in Britain in the 1970’s”. In an interview with The Guardian, Leigh himself said: “the play came from my intuitive sense of the spirit and the flavour of the times, and from a growing personal fear of, and frustration with, the suburban existence.”
Tickets are still available at £8 each. There are discounts for UK’s Emergency Services, NHS and Armed Forces personnel with a valid Blue Light Card. Performances each night start at 7.30pm prompt.
Venue: St John with St Mark’s Church Hall, Parkinson Street, Bury, BL9 6NY.
