Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho

Maggie returns in her smash hit drag extravaganza! ★★★★ Times

Following four sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe the Iron Lady is back and more fabulous than ever! To mark the 30th anniversary of the passing of Section 28, Maggie is reviving her original critically acclaimed smash-hit show MARGARET THATCHER QUEEN OF SOHO and bringing it to VAULT Festival 2018.

On the eve of the vote on Section 28 Maggie gets lost in Soho and accidentally
becomes a cabaret superstar, but will she change her mind about the homophobic bill before it’s too late…? A big gay odyssey about gay rights, the 80’s and disco.

‘A rollicking good laugh’ ★★★★ Attitude
‘Glorious camp with political punch’ ★★★★ Times
‘Less than respectful’ Telegraph
Created by Jon Brittain (Olivier Award-winner for Rotterdam) and Matt Tedford (‘the best Mrs Thatcher since Spitting Image’s Steve Nallon’ – Arthur Smith)
