Classic Clip: Abigail’s Party

Mention of Abigail’s Party in the Gastone Trolley article is reason enough to feature a clip of this TV classic.

Possibly the most 70s clip on YouTube (from the fashion to the furnishings), this is an opening scene from Mike Leigh’s TV adaptation of the play, with Alison Steadman as Beverly, hosting the party from suburban hell. Every home should have a copy.
