I am delighted to say that I have just been offered the role of Laurence Moss in a Lace Market Theatre production of Mike Leigh's 'Abigail's Party'. It goes on in early October.
On reading the hilarious script and the remembering the social niceties of the 1970s in Britain I'm trying to recall the party foods that seemed so decedent at the time.
Here are a few: please add to the list and I would love to hear of any memories around these party foods and drinks.
Cheese and pineapple on cocktail sticks, mini sausages on sticks, fondues, olives (so foreign!).
Pomagne and party cans of beer - seven pint cans.
PS: As I type this in the local library there is a grown man slurping and crunching on a bloody lolly. He is doing my head in! And calm...
