Thatcher-Rite investigates one of Britain’s biggest political legacies. As our former PM is caught in the system of the afterlife, elements of political mythology, Empire, and British tradition will come alive with the help of the audience. With drag, camp, and a good natter, your task will be to decide what her final destination is. Will she make it to the clouds of heaven or to the pits of hell? This is a queering of arguably Britain’s most conservative and divisive political figures of the 20th century. Her policies of deregulation, individualism, and social conservatism, still echoes into 2021. Yet Jack, who grew up and lives in her former constituency, has seen the change from a safe Tory seat to a swing seat of at the precipice of change. But does the long reaching arm of Thatcherism keep it from becoming more than a quiet suburban borough of London?
