Margaret Thatcher Queen Of Soho

  • Matthew Tedford
    Theatre 503, Edinburgh Fringe Festival
    The satirical drag musical tells the story of Maggie's adventures in Soho, where a wrong-turn leads to her becoming an overnight cabaret star.

    First seen as part of Theatre503's ThatcherWrite Festival, a new longer version of the play opened at Theatre503 in December 2013. The play is going to be performed up at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014 in Assembly George Square Gardens.

    a rapturous atmosphere... It is sheer entertainment; a guaranteed laugh-a-minute — unless you’re a Daily Mail reader. Sean Brooks
    British Theatre Guide

    a deliriously camp and joyful look at the now infamous Section 28 era of Thatcher’s career... this show has the audience in the palm of its hand the entire time. Tom Finch

    excellent comic writer Jon Brittain and actor Matthew Tedford have created a spectacularly funny, wonderfully camp play... Pure hilarity. Don't miss it. Miriam Zendle
