Kiln Theatre Artistic Director Indhu Rubasingham has today announced the full company for the major revival of Moira Buffini’s critically acclaimed play, Handbagged, which runs at the venue from 9 September to 22 October 2022.
Reprising their roles are Marion Bailey as ‘Q’, an Older Queen Elizabeth II and Kate Fahy as ‘T’, an Older Margaret Thatcher, and they are joined by Romayne Andrews (Actor 1), Richard Cant (Actor 2), Abigail Cruttenden (Liz) and Naomi Frederick (Mags).
The original production opened at the Theatre in 2013 before transferring to the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre in 2014, ahead of a UK tour in 2015, and performances in New York and Washington in 2019.
Her most powerful subject.
Born six months apart, each 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?
Indhu Rubasingham directs the timely return of this wickedly funny hit-comedy that imagines what the world’s most powerful women Margaret Thatcher and Her Majesty The Queen Elizabeth II, talked about behind closed palace doors.
The creative team includes: Designer Richard Kent; Lighting Designer Oliver Fenwick; Sound Designer Carolyn Downing; and Casting Director Briony Barnett CDG.
