Jill Halfpenny will star in Mike Leigh's Abigail's Party, to run March 2 - April 21 at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London. Lindsay Power will direct the production, which will subsequently have a run at the Theatre Royal Bath.

Halfpenny won an Olivier Award for her portrayal of Paulette in Legally Blonde. Among her other stage credits are Chicago and Calendar Girls. She may be best known for her work on such television shows as EastEnders, Waterloo Road and Blue Murder.

Leigh's play, set in 1970's suburbia, centers on a cocktail party that Beverly (Halfpenny) and her husband Laurence are hosting for their neighbours, where, disastrously, prejudices are unmasked and tempers flare.

Additional casting will be announced in the near future.
