What’s on- The Nerja Players

Abigail’s Party – The party that has lasted 40 years! (By: Mike Leigh)   To promote the beginning of the Autumn Season, The Nerja Players invite you to come along and take part in a reading of “Abigail’s Party” to be held at premises of The Nerja Bridge Club at the top of Calle Castillo Perez on 17th October at 6.30 for 7.00.    It’s forty years since the appalling Beverly put Donna Summer on the turntable, stacked a plate with little cheesy-pineapple ones, plied her guests with alcohol, cigarettes and Denis Roussos and slow danced her way across the shag-pile into theatrical history.   It is a simple story brilliantly done: the drinks party from hell begins when Beverley and estate-agent husband Laurence invite round new neighbours, Tony and Ange. Invited too, is nervous divorcee Sue, jittery about the bash her teenage daughter Abigail is throwing up the road. As that party reportedly gets out of hand, this one too descends into chaos. Comedy, drama and tragedy combine into an iconic piece of theatre. Mike Leigh’s “Abigail’s Party” is an undisputed classic. For all enquiries please email admin@nerjaplayers.com or visit www.nerjaplayers.com or follow us on Facebook @ The Nerja Players
