Abigail's Party

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.
Brussels based company TRISTERO is on tour again with this 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.

Notice: In this performance, the actors do smoke many cigarettes.


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