The 40th Anniversary Production

It’s forty years since the appalling Beverly first put Donna Summer on the turntable, stacked a plate with little cheesey-pineapple ones, plied her guests with alcohol, cigarettes and Demis Roussos and slow-danced her way across the shag-pile into theatrical history.

Amanda Abbington is best-known for playing Mary Morstan in Sherlock, Miss Mardle in Mr Selfridge and DS Jo Moffat in Cuffs.

The cast also includes Ben Caplan (BBC’s Call The MidwifeSunny Afternoon, the Kinks musical) as Laurence, with Rose Keegan (Bedroom Farce, Aldwych Theatre) as Susan, Charlotte Mills (Jerusalem, Royal Court) as Angela, and Ciarán Owens (Titus Andronicus, RSC) as Tony.
