MAGGIE & TED

MAGGIE & TED

The Drama! The Comedy! The Handbag!

For 20 years and more, the running battle between Margaret Thatcher and Edward Heath both enthralled and appalled the British public. Now Maggie and Ted are back, on a West End stage.

Ted Heath. The first working-class leader of the Conservative Party. His ill-fated premiership had one lasting consequence: UK membership of the European Union.

Maggie Thatcher. The UK’s first female Prime Minister. Both reviled and admired, she ousted Ted Heath as party leader and turned the Conservative Party against Europe.

The bitter, hilarious feud between these colossal personalities opened up the schism over Europe that divided party and nation – and ultimately led to Brexit. Cast includes: Martin Jarvis, Clare Bloomer, Jon Glover, Lisa Bowerman and Oli Higginson.

This play shines an intense – and sometimes uproariously funny – light on Maggie and Ted and the Birth of Brexit. Helped by a supporting cast of characters including Winston Churchill, Harold Wilson, Tony Benn, Denis Healey, Roy Jenkins – and even Boris!
