Abigail (1988-1989) was a Venezuelan telenovela that was produced by and seen on Venezuela's Radio Caracas Televisión. It was written by Elizabeth Alezard, Alberto Gómez, Mariana Luján, Amparo Montalva, and María Helena Portas and directed by Tito Rojas. This telenovela lasted 257 episodes and was distributed internationally by RCTV International.
Abigail, an exceptionally beautiful schoolgirl, vents her mischievousness on her teachers and nuns, causing continual distractions. Her conduct is a reflection of a discontented life. Her mother died when Abigail was very young. Her father, wealthy and flirtatious, has time only for business and women-and none for Abigail. One of Abigail’s desires is to get the affection of her literature teacher, Carlos Alfredo Ruiz, an intelligent young man, handsome and advanced in his studies, but beneath Abigail’s social class. Abigail’s rival for Carlos Alfredo’s love is Maria Clara Martinez, who is a fine woman, more suitable for him. Carlos Alfredo holds onto this attachment to avoid being snared by Abigail’s amorous designs. This is the background for the tumultuous saga Abigail faces: tormented love, an unhappy marriage, insanity, her adored child, uncaring relatives, and most important of all: her untiring love for Carlos Alfredo.
