Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho Returns to London for three christmas shows
The sensational and award-winning Margaret Thatcher Queen of Soho is returning to London’s Leicester Square Theatre in December in the drag comedy musical extravaganza like no other – but this time she has had a festive makeover.
Following a second completely sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2015, Off The Kerb Productions in association with Áine Flanagan Productions are pleased to announce the critically acclaimed joyous romp, Margaret Thatcher Queen Of Soho, is returning to London’s Leicester Square Theatre for three special Christmas shows from the 3rd – 5th December 2015 at 9:30pm.
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…?
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, six sold-out nights at the Leicester Square Theatre (March 2015), a full run at Theatre503 (Battersea, London) in 2013 plus inclusion in the ThatcherWrite festival, also in 2013.
Since the Queen of Soho’s debut just under 2 years ago, 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).
