Marion Bailey and Stella Gonet take to the stage as two of the most influential women of the 20th century in the world premiere of Moira Buffini’s play Handbagged.

Based on the critically acclaimed short play from 2010’s Women, Power & Politics, Handbagged explores the antipathy between the Queen and her most powerful subject Margaret Thatcher.

Bailey (Elizabeth II), whose credits include Grief at the National Theatre, returns to the Tricycle theatre following performances in The Arab Israeli Cookbook and Dance Of Death, while Gonet (Thatcher), who was last seen at the Tricycle in the Women, Power & Politics season, was most recently seen on the London stage in Before The Party at the Almeida.

The production is directed by the Tricycle theatre’s Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham with designs by Richard Kent, lighting by Oliver Fenwick and sound by Carolyn Downing.
