HandbaggedThe Tricycle Theatre's Olivier award winning production, Handbagged, which examines the relationship between former prime minister Margaret Thatcher and The Queen, comes to the Vaudeville Theatre for a limited run. Based on the short play Women, Power & Politics, Moira Buffini's "irresistibly mischievous" (The Independent) comedy drama dissects the antipathy between Maggie and Queen Elizabeth II, who held wildly divergent beliefs on society and its importance. There are multiple versions of the two women with younger and older versions of the Queen (played by Lucy Robinson and Marion Bailey, respectively) and the former Prime Minister (Fenella Woolgar and Stella Gonet) in this acclaimed drama directed by artistic director of the Tricycle Indhu Rubasingham. The production's deserved win of the Olivier for best off-west end play will ensure tickets will be in demand for this limited run which continues until 2nd August 2014.
