    One of the most divisive and influential political figures of the twentieth century, Margaret Thatcher changed the economic, political, and social make-up of the United Kingdom forever. Now, you get to meet the Iron Lady herself for a traditional English tea party.

    An exploration of the personal and political, Jack Boal re-imagines and reclaims the icon of Conservatism who was once the MP for where he grew up. An entertaining and interactive production that asks: How is the icon of British Conservatism remembered in the nation's memory and how would she remember herself?

    Created and performed by Jack Boal.
    Directed by Lila Robirosa

    Costume Design by Corinna Francavilla

    Photography by Jenna Coombs

    Supported by artsdepot, Raze Collective, Something To Aim For and Highrise Theatre.

    "Boal delivers a surprisingly nuanced portrayal of the former PM, breathing some remorse and self-awareness into the otherwise despicable beast"
