9780140481808: Abigail's Party & Goose-Pimples: AND, Goose-Pimples (Penguin Plays)

Mike Leigh's 1970s classic play 'Abigail's Party' focuses on an evening of domestic hell in the guise of a suburban drinks soirée. While teenager Abigail parties a few doors away, the pretentious Beverly and her estate agent husband, Laurence, entertain their neighbours - Abigail's mother, Susan, ex-footballer, Tony, and his wife, Angela. But as the alcohol flows, tensions in the hosts' barely functional marriage emerge and their obsessions, prejudices and petty competitiveness are ruthlessly, and hilariously, exposed.

'Goose-Pimples', meanwhile, is easily as sharp and uncompromising. This time, the action focuses on ambitious casino croupier, Jackie, and Saudi businessman, Muhammad, who meet - and misunderstand - one another spectacularly.
