Mike Leigh
Kirsten Fitzgerald, Mierka Girten, Larry Grimm, Danny McCarthy, and Natalie West will make up the cast for A Red Orchid Theatre's production of Abigail's Party, February 12-March 28, a play written by Mike Leigh and directed by Shade Murray.

Developed through lengthy improvisations, Leigh's play focuses on what happens when a British 1970's domestic cocktail party goes hilariously and horrifically awry. The petty competition pulls social relationships apart, exposing the obsessions, prejudices, dreams, and aspirations of the guests.

Leigh's other plays include It's A Great Big Shame, Greek Tragedy, Goose-Pimples, Ecstasy, and Two Thousand Years. His films include All or Nothing, Life is Sweet, Secrets and Lies, Topsy Turvy, and Happy-Go-Lucky.
