The Tricycle Theatre’s critically acclaimed production of Moira Buffini’s Handbagged transfers to the West End – the first West End transfer under Indhu Rubasingham’s tenure as Artistic Director.

The production opens at the Vaudeville Theatre on 10 April, with previews from 3 April, and runs until 2 August.
 
Marion Bailey, Stella Gonet, Fenella Woolgar, Neet Mohan and Jeff Rawle reprise their original roles, and will be joined by Lucy Robinson to complete the company. Indhu Rubasingham directs, with designs by Richard Kent, lighting design by Oliver Fenwick, and sound design by Carolyn Downing. The play is presented by Eleanor Lloyd Productions and Tricycle London Productions.
 
As Handbagged opens in the West End, Rubasingham’s Tricycle production of the multi-award-winning Red Velvet will be running at St Ann’s Warehouse in New York, and in Kilburn the Tricycle Young Company will be performing across the building with the first Tricycle Takeover Festival.
 
Indhu Rubasingham said today, “It's thrilling to be transferring Moira Buffini's wonderful new play to the Vaudeville Theatre after our sold out run at the Tricycle. Having nurtured it since 2010, this is a fantastic opportunity to continue the Tricycle’s long tradition of bringing new work to the widest possible audience."
 
The monarch – Liz.
 
Her most powerful subject – Maggie.
 
Two enduring icons born six months apart. One destined to rule, the other elected to lead. But when the stiff upper lip softened and the gloves came off, which one had the upper hand?
 
Handbagged is the ‘wickedly funny’ (Evening Standard) new play that opens the clasp on the relationship between two giants of the 20th Century.
 
Moira Buffini’s ‘irresistibly mischievous’ (The Independent) comedy speculates on that most provocative of questions: What did the world’s most powerful women talk about behind closed palace doors?
