About Handbagged

Handbagged is a wickedly funny new play that unclasps the relationship between two giants of 20th Century British culture, Queen Elizabeth II and Margaret Thatcher, and rifles through it gleefully.

Moira Buffini's 'irresistibly mischievous' (Independent) comedy speculates on that most provocative of questions: What did the world’s most powerful women talk about behind closed palace doors?  It turns the Queen and Thatcher into a very funny double act, with a quartet of actresses playing both young and older versions of the characters.

'A clever, mischievous pleasure with the sharp teeth of a kicked corgi' - Metro.
