An interactive performance exploring the personal and political legacy of Margaret Thatcher.
The audience are invited to Mrs. Thatcher’s very own traditional English tea party. With lip-sync, clown and verbatim theatre you are encouraged to bring your anger or admiration in the comforts of cake and cucumber sandwiches.
Created and performed by Jack Boal, who grew up in Thatcher’s former constituency, Thatcher-Rite puts the personal and political side by side. Her mark on the cultural, social, and political notions of Englishness begs the question, “Has Mrs. Thatcher truly left us?”
