This fresh new piece of writing, commissioned by Derby Theatre and Queen's Theatre Hornchurch as part of the RETOLD series, is by one of Britain's most exciting new writers.

RETOLD, is a series of new one-woman plays from some of the most sensational female voices in contemporary theatre today.

RETOLD's aim is to crack open classic tales and see the story afresh from the perspective of a female character.

Abi is a companion piece to Abigail's Party and saver deals are available if you buy for both, but it is not included as part of the Jump the Q Season Ticket of 3 plays.
