The monarch – Queen Elizabeth II.

Her most powerful subject – Margaret Thatcher.

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

Using historical events from the eighties as a backdrop, Handbagged is a play about how two very different women perceived their duties and exercised political power. This high-spirited comedy explores what might have gone on behind closed doors during the weekly “tea time” talks between Queen Elizabeth II and Margaret Thatcher. Each woman had a destiny that would change the world. But when the stiff upper lip softened and the gloves came off, which one had the upper hand?
