Handbagged at the Vaudeville Theatre

The monarch - Liz.

Her most powerful subject - Maggie.

Two enduring icons born six months apart. One destined to rule, the other elected to lead. But when the stiff upper lip softened and the gloves came off, which one had the upper hand?

Handbagged is the wickedly funny' (Evening Standard) new play that opens the clasp on the relationship between two giants of the 20th Century.

Moira Buffini's irresistibly mischievous' (The Independent) comedy speculates on that most provocative of questions: What did the world's most powerful women talk about behind closed palace doors?

The Tricycle Theatre's acclaimed production has arrived at London's Vaudeville Theatre.

The Handbagged cast includes Marion Bailey, Stella Gonet, Fenella Woolgar, Neet Mohan and Jeff Rawle.

Nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Affiliate Theatre (2014 Olivier Awards).

Nominated for BEST NEW COMEDY (Whatsonstage Awards) and featured in Time Out's Best Theatre Shows of the year.

The Sunday Telegraph awarded Handbagged with five-stars, describing the production as "Magnificent". The praise was also heaped on by Metro who gave the play four-stars and reviewed the play as "a clever, mischievous pleasure with the sharp teeth of a kicked corgi".

Further four-star praise came from the Daily Telegraph, who thought the play was "Outstanding", The Evening Standard, "wickedly funny" and The Guardian who thought the play was "perfectly pitched between the comic and the serious."

Time Out also gave Handbagged five-stars, describing it as "deliriously funny" whist The Times thought Handbagged was "Pure theatre, doing something only a theatre can. It should, as Maggie would have said, go on and on". Finally, The Independent also enjoyed the "Genuinely fresh and irresistible mischievous... sovereign fun."
