See Handbagged at the Tricycle

One of your author's more cultural friends took him to the theatre yesterday, to see Handbagged by Moira Buffini at the Tricycle, a play based around conversations between the Queen and Britain's first female Prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher.

The play is a thoroughly entertaining few hours, examining the journey from the first to the last of their weekly conversations, with Marion Bailey, Stella Gonet, Clare Holman and Fenella Woolgar doing fine turns as the two in conversation at different stages in their lives and Neet Mohan and Jeff Rawle playing just about everybody else from Neil Kinnock through Geoffrey Howe to Ronald Reagan. Sure, it's pitched as a pro-monarchy and anti-politics take on the relationship but it's interesting nonetheless.
