Description

Following four sell-out Fringe runs and marking 30 years of Section 28, the Iron Lady returns in her original 80s drag cabaret extravaganza! On the eve of a crucial vote, Maggie gets lost in Soho and accidentally becomes a cabaret superstar. Will she change her mind about the homophobic bill before it's too late? A big, gay odyssey about LGBT rights, the 80s and disco created by Olivier Award-winner Jon Brittain and Matt Tedford. 'Glorious camp with political punch' **** (Times). 'Rollicking good laugh' ***** (Attitude). 'Best Mrs Thatcher since Spitting Image' (Arthur Smith).
