Full casting has been announced for the London revival of Moira Buffini’s critically acclaimed Handbagged, which opens at the Kiln Theatre this September.
As previously announced, Marion Bailey and Kate Fahy will reprise their roles of ‘Q’, an Older Queen Elizabeth II and ‘T’, an Older Margaret Thatcher. They are joined by Romayne Andrews (Peter Pan Goes Wrong, Mischief Theatre; Breeders tv series), Richard Cant (The Normal Heart, Mr Gum and the Dancing Bear, all at theNational Theatre), Abigail Cruttenden (Afterlife, Flight at the National Theatre) and Naomi Frederick (The Book of Dust – La Belle Sauvage; Bridge Theatre).
Indhu Rubasingham directs the timely return of Moira Buffini’s 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 original production premiered at the Kiln Theatre (formerly Tricycle Theatre) in 2013 before moving to the West End’s Vaudeville Theatre in 2014, followed by a UK tour in 2015 and performances in New York and Washington in 2019.
Handbagged runs from 9 September 2022 until 22 October 2022 at the Kiln Theatre, London.
