Tuesday 14 May - Saturday 1 June
An Oldham Coliseum Theatre, Wiltshire Creative and York Theatre Royal production
The monarch and Her most powerful subject.
With great theatricality, Handbagged imagines what may have happened at the Queen’s infamous weekly meetings with Margaret Thatcher.
Entertainingly told and packed with satirical humour, the two women collide as they share their opposing views of Britain’s role in the world. With a supporting cast of Ronald and Nancy Reagan, Geoffrey Howe, Denis Thatcher and others, Handbagged is funny, sharp and mischievous.
It became a huge West End hit and went on to be nominated for Best Comedy at the 2015 Olivier Awards.
“Very entertaining, mischievously funny and resolutely theatrical”
“Thought-provoking and a barrel of laughs”
“A very enjoyable political pantomime”
North West End
“A clever, mischievous pleasure, with the sharp teeth of a kicked corgi”

The Oldham Times
“Extremely funny, never slacking in pace and full of excellent little impressions”
