Handbagged

By Moira Buffini

Paperback £9.99

Handbags, hairspray and sensible shoes.

The monarch - Liz.

Her most powerful subject - Maggie.

One believed there was no such thing as society. The other had vowed to serve it.

Opening the clasp on the antipathy between two giants of the twentieth century, Handbagged by Moira Buffini premiered at the Tricycle Theatre in September 2013.

An earlier, one-act version of the play, which premiered at the Tricycle Theatre in 2010 as part of the Women, Power and Politics season, is also available.

Note for performers: Margaret Thatcher and the Queen are portrayed as their younger and older selves by two separate actresses each. The men (and in some cases the women) who play a huge variety of minor parts are played by two men, one younger and one older.
