Further casting has been revealed for the upcoming tour of Abigail's Party.

Joining the previously announced Jodie Prenger as Beverly are Vicky Binns (Coronation Street) as Angela, Calum Callaghan (Black Mirror) as Tony, Daniel Casey (Midsomer Murders) as Lawrence and Rose Keegan (Abigail's Party) as Susan. The piece will be directed by Sarah Esdaile.

Mike Leigh's '70s set comedy, which first premiered in 1977, follows a series of warring couples in a fractious suburbia. It was revived at the Oxford Playhouse to mark its 40th anniversary, with Amanda Abbington in the role of Beverly.

The 2019 touring production opens in Brighton in January, visiting Birmingham, York, Glasgow, Southampton, Stoke-on-Trent, Woking, Northampton, Blackpool, Aylesbury, Liverpool, Dartford, Manchester and Edinburgh.
