Abigail's Party

2004

info

Beverly and Laurence, a smart couple in a smart neighbourhood, organise a cocktail party for their neighbours. Acquaintance is easily made as the first glasses are drunk, but several rounds later it becomes increasingly difficult to keep things agreeable. An hilarious and caustic comedy by Mike Leigh, the director of such films as Naked and Secrets and Lies. An absolute cult classic in Great Britain.

By and with: Kristien De Proost, Youri Dirkx, Lorenza Goos, Iris Van Cauwenbergh and Peter Vandenbempt

Text TRISTERO translation of Abigail's Party (1977) by Mike Leigh.

Scenography: Emma Denis

Costumes: Lies Van Assche in collaboration with Anna Seniow

Graphic design: Sven Beirnaert

Production: Dagmar Blommaert

In collaboration with Kaaitheater for Komediefestival 'Some like it zot'.

reviews

“knowing how to stage a good comedy is one of Tristero's assets, and it is a rare one."

(De Morgen 13/09/05)

"What we are being offered here: a perfectly dosed comedy, where neither tears or laughter prevail, but reinforce one another during the paly. This is rare, intelligent humour with an edge."

(Cutting Edge 25/09/07)
