HANDBAGGED imagines what really happened in the private meetings between two of the world’s most powerful women: the Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, and Queen Elizabeth II. Born just six months apart, each leader has the capacity to change the world, but how the world should be changed is another story altogether. Will Mags and Liz find common ground in tumultuous times, or will the gloves come off at Buckingham Palace?

Fans of comedy and politics will find this play wholly interesting and also riotously funny. Not suitable for children, Handbagged is recommended for those who will enjoy delving into the darker side of British history. For specific details, email our artistic director.
