Margaret Thatcher Queen Of Soho’ announces debut tour
January 27, 2016  //  By:   //  News  //  Comments are off

Following two sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and London’s Leicester Square Theatre, the critically acclaimed Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho is hitting the road for limited dates this spring.   The debut UK tour also see’s Maggie take to the stage for three nights (21st April, 19th May & 15th July) at the infamous Udderbelly venue on London’s Southbank. Don’t miss the chance to see this sensational drag comedy musical extravaganza like no other!

On the eve of the vote on Section 28 Maggie gets lost in London’s decadent Soho and accidentally becomes a cabaret superstar, but will she change her mind about the homophobic bill before it’s too late…?

Performer and co-writer, Matt Tedford (‘the best Mrs Thatcher since Spitting Image’s Steve Nallon’ – Arthur Smith), is pulling on the tights once more to give audiences an insight into the difference an individual could have made with a sideswipe at homophobia and censorship.

Co-written and directed by Jon Brittain, this delightful odyssey about gay rights, the 80’s and disco has received rave reviews across the board and won huge acclaim after playing to an audience of over 15,000 during two completely sold-out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014 & 2015, two sold-out runs at the Leicester Square Theatre (March & December 2015), two consecutive years at the Brighton Comedy Festival (2014 & 2015), as well as appearances at the Brighton Fringe and Dublin’s International Gay Theatre Festival, both in 2014.


Since the Queen of Soho’s debut in 2013, the show has won both the Brighton Argus Angel for Artistic Excellence (Brighton Fringe) and Micheál Mac Liammóir Award for Best Male Performance (Dublin International Gay Theatre Festival) for Matt Tedford plus has been nominated for the Most Promising Writer (Off West End Awards).

The magnificent Maggie will be returning to the Edinburgh Fringe with a brand new show for 2016, with full details to be announced in the coming months.
