A TV play based on the Hampstead Theatre production. Beverly has invited her new neighbours, Angela and Tony, over for drinks. She has also asked her divorced neighbour, Sue, because Sue's fifteen year-old daughter, Abigail, was holding a party in their house. Beverly's husband, Lawrence comes home late from work, just before the guests arrive. The gathering starts off in a stiff insensitive British middle class way with people who do not know each other, until Beverly and Lawrence start sniping at each other. Written by

The use of the song by Demis Roussos
in the teleplay which became so synonymous with Abigail's Party, actually replaced the one by José Feliciano
which was used in the stage production, because they couldn't get permission to use Feliciano's name or music. See more
To be quite honest with you, he's a boring little bugger at times, actually.
