Handbagged – Vaudeville Theatre

By Moira Buffini
Presented by Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Tricycle London Productions

FIVE STARS ‘A phenomenon… Even better after its West End transfer’ The Sunday Telegraph

FIVE STARS ‘Even more cherishable in a bigger West End theatre’ Evening Standard


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?
